Seattle Times: No immediate cause found for fire at Wah Mee massacre site

Wah Mee MassacreGawkers are flocking to the scene of a Christmas Eve fire which tore through a building in Seattle’s International District where 13 people were killed in the biggest massacre (photo from historylink.org) in Washington state history, reports the Seattle Times.

Known as the Wah Mee Massacre, the robbery and murder in 1983 is a part of Chinatown history and some hoped the building could still be saved.

“Maybe a bad part of history, but history.” said Matthew Masuoka who works in the area.

Fire investigators says its too early to determine the cause of the fire or to know what will happen to the building.

They’ve been unable to get inside the building out of fear it could still collapse, but they hope to be able to get inside today.
