Eastside Fire and Rescue responds to two seperate fires at the same Gilman Village restaurant in less than 12 hours

The second fire on Wednesday morning caused the roof of the Egg and Us restaurant to collapse.

Eastside Fire and Rescue responded to two different fires at Gilman Village’s Egg and Us restaurant that occurred within hours of each other.

Eastside Fire and Rescue Battalion Chief, Dana Schutter said the first fire occurred around 4:30 pm on Tuesday.

Schutter said responders conducted an initial search of the building to make sure no one was trapped inside. He said the structural fire had created high smoke and high heat conditions inside the building.

The investigation into the cause of the fire is still pending, but Schutter said the fire likely originated from a kitchen.

At 3:45 early Wednesday morning, less than 12 hours after the department believed they had extinguished the fire, a delivery truck driver reported smoke emitting from the same building that had been on fire earlier.

Schutter said the second fire caused the roof to collapse, and the department has not yet been able to confirm if anyone was in the building when it collapsed.

Investigations into the cause of the second fire are also pending, according to Schutter.
