Three-alarm fire in Seattle. Video as restaurants burn in Greenwood neighborhood early this morning.

From the AP:

A three-alarm fire burned a building in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood housing three restaurants and a coffee shop.

Fire Department spokeswoman Dana Vander Houwen  says it was reported about 4 a.m. Friday. The roof partially collapsed, forcing firefighters to take defensive positions outside.

There were no injuries except for a firefighter who twisted an ankle.

Investigators are looking for the cause and estimating damages.

Vander Houwen says there was smoke and water damage to the next-door Taproot Theater, but no fire damage. She says firefighters also prevented the flames from spreading to a building on the other side with shops, apartments and an animal shelter with several cats.
