Seattle Fire looking for tips in Longfellow P-Patch arson investigation

The Seattle Fire Department is looking for tips as they investigate a fire started at the Longfellow Creek P-Patch storage shed in the early morning hours of April 24.

Here are the details from Kyle Moore with SFD:

Fire Investigators have determined a shed fire located at a West Seattle P-Patch is an incendiary fire.

At 6:50 a.m., a delivery driver called 911 to report a shed fire located in the park in the 2400 block of SW Thistle Street. Engine 11 arrived to find a smoldering pile of combustibles in a wheelbarrow bucket. The fire was quickly extinguished. There was also minor scorching to the shed.

The damage estimate is $500.

The Seattle Police Department’s Arson Bomb Squad was notified of the fire and will investigate.

Anyone with information that can help solve this case is asked to call the Arson Hotline at 1-800-55-Arson.
