Brush fire along I-5 in North Seattle forces evacuation of nearby homes – KIRO 7 News Seattle

SEATTLE – A bushfire that broke out along Interstate 5 in north Seattle resulted in the evacuation of nearby homes on Wednesday.

The fires broke out just before 4 p.m. across the street from Jackson Park Golf Course.

Within a minute, a video showed how quickly the fire was spreading.

Firefighters said the flames got a little too close to homes at times.

“We had to evacuate some nearby houses because they were in close proximity to this fire. After the residents were safely evacuated, we poured water and fire retardant on the houses to make sure they weren’t in danger, ”said David Cuerpo, public information officer for the Seattle Fire Department.

The crews said they found the remains of a homeless camp near the scene of the fire.

Nobody was injured.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
