Several businesses were destroyed Monday afternoon after a three-alarm fire erupted at a retail building in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. Nearly two-thirds of Seattle's firefighting force responded to the blaze. The first units arrived just after noon as heavy smoke began pouring from the building in the 2300 block of NW Market Street. All five businesses in the building were quickly evacuated. La Isla restaurant, Supercuts, Kitchen N Things and Coleman Jewelers were completely destroyed by the fire, according to Seattle Fire. The Pho Vietnamese restaurant was also reportedly damaged from smoke exposure and water. About 65 percent of Seattle's firefighting force battled the blaze, officials said. At one point, more than 150 firefighters responded. One firefighter suffered minor injuries and was taken to Harborview Medical Center.
