All Mercer Island Fire Department units, along with Bellevue and Eastside fire department personnel, responded to a working commercial structure fire on Mercer Island after the building’s fire alarm and detection system activated 911 on June 19.

The Island Corporate Center had a fire that originated in a kitchen in the building’s first floor restaurant.

Units arrived on scene to discover a fire that was primarily located in concealed ductwork and soffit space adjacent to the restaurant. This fire emitted thick, black smoke out of a soffit vent on the south side of the structure. Fire crews removed ceiling and soffit material from the interior and exterior of the building, and applied water with hand lines to extinguish the fire once it became exposed.

No injuries were reported and the event is currently under investigation.
