Numerous agencies coordinated to battle a shed fire on Spruce Drive in Seaside.
Seaside Fire and Rescue responded to the three-alarm structure fire in the 1100 block of Spruce Drive shortly before noon on Thursday, Feb. 7. A single-level, metal pole shed sitting adjacent to a single-family residence and the Salmonberry Knoll apartment complex was billowing smoke when fire and emergency crews arrived.
According to a statement from City of Seaside, the property resident and shed owner advised firefighters and responders that the shed contained many hazardous materials throughout the building, making containment "a slow and arduous process."
Traffic was affected as the fire's location forced a shutdown along South Wahanna Road between Cooper Street and the entrance to Providence Seaside Hospital south of Whispering Pines Drive for nearly three hours.
