As of 1:20pm today, May 15th, Whatcom Fire District 7 (WCFD7) firefighters were on scene at a commercial structure fire in the 2000 block of Grandview Road, east of I-5. Initial reports were 1 person had suffered minor injuries.
WCFD7 Assistant Fire Chief Dean Crosswhite said 1 person was treated for minor burns at the scene and refused transport.
Crosswhite said there were flames and smoke coming from a commercial unit in the middle of the multi-unit building when they arrived. That unit suffered heavy fire and smoke damage while adjacent units suffered minor smoke damage.
Crosswhite credited the building’s construction for containing the fire, not allowing it to spread to the adjacent units. Crosswhite said he was not willing to speculate as to the cause.
Witnesses at the scene said the fire was in a unit occupied by Yellow Cab Inc.
Whatcom County Fire Marshall’s Office is investigating.
