At 3:32 pm on January 31, 2024, four SFD units were dispatched to a fire alarm with sprinkler activation at the Hobson Place supportive housing apartments. Battalion 5, Engine 6, Engine 30, and Ladder 3 were the only units dispatched as protocol, but three minutes after arriving on scene, a full response was requested for smoke visible from an upper floor. The fire was brought under control by sprinkler system, and Seattle Fire crews extinguished the fire. However, water from the sprinklers and hoses caused serious flooding and water damage in the building. The incident lasted one hour and forty-two minutes.
