Firefighters put out electrical fire at Seattle’s Swansons Nursery

A fire broke out at Swansons Nursery early Monday morning, and Seattle Firefighters believe an electrical issue was the start to the flames.

According to the Ballard News-Tribune’s news partner, Q-13 Fox, a Seattle Fire Department representative said flames damaged a portion of a greenhouse at the nursery, which is located on the 9700 block of 15th Avenue NW.

Q-13 reported: “Fire broke through the glass of the greenhouse,” said Deputy Chief Tom Walsh. “It was extinguished pretty quickly. I would say about 15 minutes.”

SFD stated that the flames were limited to a small room within the large greenhouse.

Fire crews showed up in time to prevent the flames from spreading to neighboring properties.
