At 2:55 pm on March 27, 2023, the Seattle Fire Department responded to a fire-in-building at the Franklin High School in South Seattle, WA. It’s a bit unclear of what was found, but there was at least a small fire. According to SFD, a fire was found in one classroom on the second floor. The fire was extinguished and crews worked to ventilate smoke. The incident lasted 1 hour and 26 minutes.
