A fire damaged a house on the east side of Olympia this morning, but no residents were there when the fire department arrived. Nobody was injured.
According to a news release, the Olympia Fire Department was called at 9:25 a.m. Friday morning to a house at 1621 Prospect Ave. NE. Firefighters arrived four minutes later and found fire reaching to the house's roof.
Some firefighters attacked the fire from the front door while others opened the roof to stop the fire from spreading across the attic.
Fire crews included three engine companies, one ladder company, two medic units and a command unit from Olympia. Lacey Fire District #3 responded for backup.
Property losses were estimated at $10,000. The property was determined uninhabitable, and a red tag was placed on the building.
