Update: Multiple-alarm apartment fire in North Burien

5:37 PM: Huge fire callout from multiple departments – North Highline and Seattle, SeaTac, Tukwila, Renton, the port – because of an apartment fire in the 12300 block of Ambaum. Traffic is getting through but very slowly so we suggest avoiding the area.

7:35 PM: No injuries reported, and no cause announced so far. The building is actually at 1224 124th, a 24-unit structure that’s almost half a century old, according to county records.

11:11 PM: KIRO TV reports a baseboard-heater problem is blamed for starting the fire.

  1. I seen it first hand and I was just looking out the window and notice the fire and it took the fire department like 10-15 minutes to get to the fire and it took 1 hour get it under control and now they are doing a fire investigation.
