Firefighters extinguish car fire at U. Village parking garage

Seattle firefighterrs are airing out a University Village parking garage after a car fire filled the building with smoke Friday morning.

No one was injured in the fire, which was reported at 11:48 a.m., said Lt. Sue Stangl of the Seattle Fire Department.

Most fire personnel were sent home after finding out the blaze was a car fire, Stangl said. Firefighters put the fire out around noon using a fire extinguisher.

Stangl did not know how the fire started in the parking garage on Northeast 49th Street, which is near the Crate & Barrel in a popular shopping area.
