Dumpster fire at apartment complex
WOODINVILLE--A smoldering fire in a dumpster at the Edgewood Apartment complex brought a Woodinville Fire and Life Safety District crew last Tuesday afternoon. Edgewood maintenance crews attempted to put the fire in the metal container out with a garden hose before firefighters doused the fire. The maintenance director of the complex in the 14200 block of 181st Pl. N.E. speculated that ashes from residents' fireplaces may have been to blame for the fire which melted part of the dumpster's plastic lid.
