Fremont Ave. Laundromat Is Back(ish)

December 6th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

A fire shut down the Fremont Ave. Laundromat back in April, leading many to think the building would be abandoned and sold. However, the laundromat at 43rd & Fremont Ave. is back. How do I know? There’s about about ten different signs on the windows saying “We Are Back.”

Technically, however, the laundromat isn’t open yet. Workers are still sorting out new machines and setting the building up for a grand re-opening. We’ll try to find out when that’ll be but in the meantime you should probably stop parking there all day. They’re going to want their spaces back.

Fire Shuts Down Fremont Ave. Laundromat

April 25th, 2011 by Sean Keeley

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.
