#844 - Two More Homeless Encampment Fires In Seattle Brings Total to Over 1,200 This Year!
Show Notes

It has become a familiar sight at many homeless encampments in the city: An orange glow from a fireball erupting among the tents.

On Wednesday evening, it occurred under the West Seattle Bridge and at an encampment located across the street from Chelan Café, where Jillian Meador is a regular customer.

“And it seems to be spreading in Seattle," she said. "That hits way too close to home."

Seattle firefighters a day earlier also extinguished a smaller blaze at Ballard Commons Park that burned down a tent and scorched nearby trees. The latest encampment fires now exceed 1,200 so far this year, a new record with just under two months before 2021 ends.
