Fires in Snoqualmie’s Azalea Park Restrooms Deemed Arson

On September 14, small fires were set in the men’s and women’s restrooms at Azalea Park, 6604 Azalea Way SE in Snoqualmie.

On September 21, Snoqualmie Parks Division staff arrived at the Azalea Park restrooms for routine maintenance. Upon arrival, they found signs of an intentional fire similar to the incident on September 14. The Snoqualmie Police Department did an initial investigation.  

The restroom doors at Azalea Park are currently locked.
