Seattle Mayor Ed Murray says the Greenwood business district will rebuild after what he calls a “devastating disaster” that destroyed businesses and inured nine firefighters.
Among the businesses damaged or destroyed in a natural gas explosion in a North Seattle neighborhood was Neptune Coffee, Mr. Gyro and a bike shop called G&O Family Cyclery.
Below are before-and-after photos of the strip where the businesses were leveled. (Navigation note: Move the slider back and forth to see before and after.)
Seattle firefighters were called shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday to a gas leak at a building in the 200 block of North 85th Street near Greenwood Avenue North.
Forty minutes after firefighters responded, an explosion reduced the building to rubble.
