Bellevue Fire Dept. is on the scene. — Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) November 5, 2013 Here is a prior photo of Felix Hernandez’s home from the internet. Clearly, the same place shown in fire photo. — Geoff Baker (@gbakermariners) November 5, 2013 No reports of injuries or foul play, although this is breaking news and surely in the hours and days to come, more details will be provided. Credit: Felix Hernandez finished a lackluster (by his standards) 2013 campaign at 12-10 with a 3.04 E.R.A.  In his eight full seasons in the big leagues, he has recorded 30 starts or more in all of them and been named to 4 of the last 5 All Star teams (ironically not named in 2010 when he one his Cy Young).  The 27-year-old Venezuelan native has played his entire career in Seattle and is signed through 2019 at $22M or more each season going forward. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Report: Seattle Mariners Felix Hernandez house catches on fire appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
