Building Notes

Seattle Fire Station #25 was designated a City of Seattle Historic Landmark; some have the construction date as 1905. The building has a gabled and hipped roof formed in an "L," covered by red tile. Four large doors accommodated the fire equipment. Sleeping quarters existed upstairs.

The Seattle Times observed in 1968: "Company 25 had the honor of being the first Seattle fire-fighting unit to have motorized equipment when a Seagrave truck went into service there in 1910." (See "Fire Station Successor Due in '69," Seattle Times, 12/08/1968, p. 11.)
