Seattle police investigating suspected arson at Central District eatery

Police are searching for information about a suspected arson that burned a Central District restaurant, doing tens of thousands of dollars in damage.

The fire, at Med Mix, a Mediterranean and fried-chicken restaurant at 23rd and Union, was set around 2:15 a.m. Monday, police said. The fire was quickly extinguished, and no one was inside the restaurant at the time.

Surveillance video of the fire shows a hooded figure spraypainting the words “4 Pratt and Trayv” on the side of the building before dumping gasoline into the restaurant’s storage area, lighting it and running away.

The restaurant was vacant for a time after a 2010 shooting there that killed Degene Barecha, who owned the restaurant, then called Philadelphia Cheese Steak.

Police are asking anyone with information about the fire to call 911 or the Seattle Police Arson/Bomb Unit at 206-684-8980 and refer to this case.

Details will be added as more information becomes available.
