Fire Department Burning House on 15th Avenue NE

Pa280727The Seattle Fire Department has been performing training exercises for new recruits all week on a house at 10720 15th Avenue NE with controlled fires and then putting them out. Neighbors and passers by  have noticed the presence of many fire trucks on 15th Avenue NE which have been part of the drills. The house was scheduled for demolition anyway, which made it perfect for the fire department to use.  After a series of smaller fires this week, the entire structure will be burned to the ground sometime on Friday, probably by noon. There are obstructed views available from the street if you want to watch.
