Fire Shuts Down Fremont Ave. Laundromat

By Sean Keeley · April 25th, 2011 · 4 Comments

Scary times Monday morning when a fire broke out at the Fremont Ave. Laundromat at 43rd & Fremont Ave N.

The fire broke out sometime after 3 a.m. Monday morning. According to the Seattle Fire Department, there was nobody inside and no one was hurt.

The fire apparently started near the rear of the laundromat but all you have to do is look at the front to know it made its way through the entire building. The windows are smokey and one of the front doors was damaged, possibly by firemen entering the building.

The cause had not yet been determined as of Monday afternoon. No word on how long the laundromat will be out of commission.

You can see a photo of the fire trucks at the scene in the early morning here.
