Spark from construction equipment caused Belltown fire

Posted by John de Leon

Friday's fire at a Belltown apartment building has been ruled an accident, the Seattle Fire Department said Monday.

Investigators said a spark from construction equipment ignited the foam insulation on the roof of the 25-story McGuire Building.

The fire was reported in the 272-unit building just before 5 p.m. The dollar loss is zero because of the limited fire damage. In addition, the building has been scheduled for demolition.
