This week’s Lake Union Dunn Promise Awards go to Luis Velazquez (Yard) and Ben Dominick (Yard).
Luis spotted a Japanese balloon carried lantern landing on the roof of our common lot shed early in the morning (about 5 AM) of 5/14/2020. The lantern immediately caught the roof on fire.
Luis alerted others in the yard, and Ben Dominick immediately contacted the fire department who quickly responded. Needless to say that the Lake Union crew are extremely grateful for this excellent first responder response to the situation.
No damage other than a small hole in the roof of the shed, no one hurt, and operating as normal – could not be better than that. This was labeled by the fire department as an extremely careless and thoughtless action on the part of someone in the neighborhood but definitely not intentional to do harm to our location.
Thank you Luis and Ben! Extremely well done!
If anyone knows who lofted a candle in a balloon early yesterday morning, I, for one, am curious about the other end of this story.
