“There will be a prayer service on Monday, July 27th, at 6:30 p.m. at St. Catherine’s Parish across the street from the fires,” writes Maiya (and Erica) in comments on our earlier post.

“They will collect any cash donations for the families that the community would like to make as well as any written well-wishes for those affected. At this time the parish did not think the families needed clothing, food or other material items, but that could change in the coming weeks.”

Her information is coming from the church.

On Friday the Seattle Fire Department tweeted:

Yesterday’s fire on 8 Ave NE damaged 6 structures was determined to be intentionally set. $2.5 million loss. SPD is investigating.

More information on the Thursday morning fire, including photos, can be found on the fire department’s Fire Line here.

There is a standard $10,000 reward fund for information that helps solve arson fires.
