Structure Fire

Olympia Firefighters responded to a report of smoke in the area of the 2000 block of Peach Ave. NW at 8:11 pm, Tuesday evening, April 3, 2018.  The first engine arrived seven minutes later to find that the source of smoke was from a fire inside a small one-story house. The on-scene engine company requested a residential fire response summoning another three more engines, one ladder truck, two medic units and one command vehicle. McLane Black Lake FD responded by providing one of the engine companies listed above.

The occupants, one adult and three children ages 2, 3 and 4 were out of the building upon the fire departments arrival. The bedroom fire was quickly extinguished. Fire and smoke damage resulted to the room of origin and light smoke damage to the remainder of the house. Damage estimate is $10,000 to the structure and $5,000 to the contents. There were no working smoke detectors in the house, crews reported that one of the detectors was missing its battery. Red Cross has been called to the scene to assist with sheltering the displaced occupants. The cause of the fire is under investigation and no injuries reported at this time.
