‘Massive amount of combustibles’ led to quick spread of fire at Seattle lumber warehouse
SEATTLE – Two buildings collapsed and another building and two sheds burned in a four-alarm fire in Seattle near Seattle Pacific University late Saturday night. All of the structures are owned by Gascoigne Lumber Company and Northwest Milloworks, and they all mostly contained lumber. Seattle Fire said the “massive amount of combustible materials” led to the fire spreading and growing very quickly. The buildings are along the ship canal in North Queen Anne, in the 3500 block of 6th Ave. West.
