SEATTLE –  Towels used in a spa and soaked with massage oils are being blamed for a fire at a Fremont laundromat early Monday morning reported Q13FOX News.

Seattle Fire investigators said someone called 911 around 2:00 a.m. to report they could see flames from a commercial Laundromat near Fremont Ave N and North 43rd St.


Fire crews arrived on the scene quickly and got the fire under control within 20 minutes.

The fire was contained to a west wall and a small section of ceiling.

“The fire investigator determined the cause of the fire was spa towels with oils that when heated caused a spontaneous combustion,” read a line in a post about the fire on the department’s blog.

No one was hurt, but the fire caused roughly $10,000 in damages to the laundromat.
