No More Ring of Fire

Word on the street is that my favorite annular mound of dirt, nestled between the Burke-Gilman trail and the ship canal in Fremont, has been bulldozed by order of the fire marshal.

You drive me crazy with that boogie oogie oogie oogie oogie oogie oogie oogie!

Quoted from a letter posted to the pointythree forum:

As you may know, Parks recently received a violation notice from the Fire Marshal’s office concerning illegal fires at this site (e.g., fires lit by people who had no permit). The Fire Department had also been responding at an increased frequency to nuisance fires at this site.

Parks closed the site temporarily to ensure no more violations. Signs posted at the site last week were vandalized and burned. Parks posted new signs today. We will schedule a public meeting with the community to discuss the future options for this site – the information is all posted on the signs.

Sincerely,

(Ms.) Dewey Potter
Communications Manager
Seattle Parks and Recreation

The Fremont Firepit was one of those magical places in the city that made Seattle really rock. There’s nothing better on a cold night in December than warming up next to a raging pallet fire inferno, with 20 bicyclists and a few bottles of whiskey.

I’ll keep y’all posted on any public meeting details as they become available.

-UPDATE-
This will be discussed tonight, at the Fremont Arts Council meeting. 7PM, 3940 Fremont Ave, just down the hill from the Buckaroo.
