Bellevue commercial building suffers $10,000 in damages from roof fire

The Bellevue Fire Department responded to two fires over the weekend.

The first, a commercial structure fire in the 12800 block of Northup Way, occurred at approximately 10:45 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 12. Once on scene, crews investigated “diffuse smoke” inside the building.

According to the fire department’s Twitter account, truck companies were operating on the roof of the building and found a small amount of fire within the roof structure. Firefighters had the fire under control at approximately 11:08 a.m. As they investigate the cause of the fire, firefighters estimate the preliminary damage cost to be about $10,000. No one was injured.

The second fire occurred that same day at around 7:30 p.m. Crews rushed to the third floor of an apartment building in the 100 block of 105th Ave. SE, in which smoke was visible. The fire, which was caused by burned food on a stove top, was under control in about five minutes. Again, no one was injured.
