Firefighters put out fire in Lower Queen Anne

Seattle firefighters quickly extinguished a blaze at First Avenue North and Denny Way in Lower Queen Anne Saturday.

Some workers accidentally lit an outside wall of a building that houses Tini Bigs and Hula Hula, two bars, according to Seattle Fire Department spokesman Kyle Moore.

The back wall of the building had been leaking, so workers were trying to waterproof it using a sealant and torches,  Moore said.

Firefighters got the call about about 12:20 p.m. and put out the fire in a few minutes. No one was injured, and Moore said there was about $500 in damage.
