6:23 AM: Thanks for the tips. An early-morning fire has damaged the Locker Room Tavern at 9633 16th SW in downtown White Center. The fire callout went to two alarms because of the location, but adjacent buildings were not damaged, we were told at the scene. Nobody was hurt; oost of the damage was on the roof and in the attic, according to the public-information officer for North Highline Fire District and neighboring fire departments, Pat Pawlak (updated: here’s video of his briefing):

No indication yet how it started – fire investigators were still on the way, and engines/trucks were blocking 16th while we were there, though the fire’s out.

This was first reported just after 5 am.

2:56 PM: Fire investigator Scott Case tells WCN, “The cause of the fire was improperly discarded smoking materials in the planters along the front of the building.”
