One day after our sister site Phinneywood was honored with the SPJ award for its coverage of the devastating Greenwood arsons, we’re proud to roll out the fourth in a series of stories partnering Next Door Media sites with the nonprofit Common Language Project and students of University of Washington’s Entrepreneurial Journalism class.  “After the Arson” takes a closer look at what happened in the aftermath of the Greenwood fires and the people still dealing with the fallout today.  In addition to the story, this student project also includes two videos.  Click here to read “After the Arson.”

Car fires in nearby U District were arson

March 10th, 2010 by master

Two car fires in the wee hours of the morning this week were arson, Seattle Fire investigators have determined.

The first car fire occurred at 12:47 a.m. on March 8 in the 4100 block of 11th Ave. NE. The second car fire occurred at 12:12 a.m. on March 9 in the 4200 block of 7th Ave. NE. The second fire also damaged the exterior of an adjacent duplex. As precaution, the fire department says it’s increasing its presence in the area and distributing arson prevention flyers.

If you see anything suspicious in the area at night or early in the morning, Seattle Fire asks that you call 911.
