Fireworks determined to be cause of Renton roof fire at The Landing

Structure fire at Vino estimated to have caused $1 million in damage.

The Renton Regional Fire Authority (RFA) responded to a structure fire at The Landing shopping and dining center on July 6.

Security officers at The Landing reported seeing flames on the roof of a building across from the Rock Wood Fire Pizza at 830 N. 10th St., according to Sara Morris, a spokesperson with the department. The fire was noticed just before midnight.

The security employees called 911 and reported the fire on the roof of the business Vino at the Landing at 800 N. 10th Pl., which they believed was caused by fireworks. The employees reportedly attempted to extinguish the fire before responders arrived.

According to Morris, when the first fire engine arrived and confirmed the roof was on fire, the situation was quickly upgraded to a “working commercial fire.”

Morris said crews first did a primary search of the building but did not find anyone inside.

At 2:14 a.m. on July 7, a second alarm was requested for additional units from the department after the crews fought the fire for nearly two hours.

“We had a total of 18 units respond, with approximately 23 Renton RFA firefighters responding,” Morris said in an email. “We also had assistance from Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority, Bellevue Fire Department, King County Fire District #2, King County Medic One and Renton Police Department.”

According to Morris, a ladder truck was able to knock down most of the fire from the roof. Crews remained on scene for several hours to extinguish any hot spots and check for any additional extensions before a fire investigation began to determine the cause.

The fire was determined by investigators to be caused by fireworks that ignited the roof of the building, the department estimated the damage to be approximately a value of $1 million — with $200,000 in fire damage and $800,000 in water damage to the buildings.

Morris reported that there were no injuries to community members or firefighters. The Renton Reporter has reached out to the business for comment.

“Although the fire was contained to the building roof structure, we have significant water & smoke damage inside the restaurant,” said Rick McMaster, owner of Vino at the Landing. “We will be closed for months while the restaurant goes through a near full restoration. We have water damage everywhere including HVAC, walls, floors, bar, kitchen equipment, tables, chairs, wine shelves, etc. Damage to the electrical is still unknown.”
