Fire quickly extinguished on Burke Ave.

Posted by Kate Bergman on August 20th, 2011

Firefighters responded to Burke Ave. N. just off 50th St. this evening — nearly parking on the ladybug — for a fire in a home. The fire reportedly started in the microwave, but crews were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.

Earlier today, a house fire on 46th near Fremont Ave. damaged a home and created long traffic backups in the area. Our sister site Fremont Universe has that story. (Thanks Marina for the Burke Ave. photos!)
