House Fire around 4200 Beach Drive

I just learned about this via West Seattle Blog on Facebook.   A home at 4200 Beach Drive caught fire.  According to WSB,  "Beach Drive is blocked off from La Rustica to Me Kwa Mooks because of the callout" and Metro route 37 may be impacted.

Update 8:00 a.m.:   By the time I reached the home, the fire was put out and the road was still blocked beginning at the north point of Mee Kwa Mooks.  Thankfully this is a home that was not yet occupied (home with angular roof).  

WSB reports that "one firefighter suffered an arm injury and had to go to the hospital".
