Big Fish Games down due to fire

By Erin Bell |

Big Fish Games has been down all morning due to a fire that broke out at Fisher Plaza, the largest data center in Seattle. Posting on, Big Fish Games Founder Paul Thelen said that power was out to the whole building and urged fans to be patient.

"The building is under several feet of water and they will not tell us when it will restore power," Thelen said. "We are in process of transferring all our data to our backup datacenter, but that is a 12 to 18 hour process as we have thousands of servers and massive databases of info to transfer.

"Fisher plaza is the hosting facility for hundreds of companies, so this is a major Internet disruption."

We’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
