Capitol Hill Fire Update
Saturday morning, neighbors reported a huge homeless encampment fire in a wooded area. It could also be seen by drivers along I-5. Once again, Seattle firefighters (@SeattleFire) trekked their way up the hill at the corner of Melrose Ave E & E Roy St. Flames were extinguished. Unclear how this fire started. No one was at the encampment when I arrived. None of the neighbors wanted to go on camera but told me they’re frustrated by all the new tents popping up in Capitol Hill. No sign of Councilmember Kshama Sawant (@cmkshama.) She’s already checked out.
