Several semi-trucks, utility poles, and at least one RV were involved in a large fire in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.

The fire near East Marginal Way South and 1st Avenue South at the north end of the 1st Avenue Bridge closed all lanes of northbound State Route 99 due to the fire. The Washington State Department of Transportation said traffic was being diverted off to the Michigan St. exit until Wednesday morning.

According to Seattle Fire Department spokesperson David Cuerpo, crews responded to the area after multiple people called 911 to report a brush fire just after 4:30 p.m. Responding firefighters reported the fire was “wind-driven,” and spread to several semi-trucks parked along the roadway and at least two energized utility poles.
