Crews from Lacey Fire District 3 extinguished a fire around 1 a.m. Monday in an unoccupied house in the 3600 block of Arbor Drive Southeast near Long Lake. The fire was caused by a heater that was running in the garage and was located “too close to combustibles,” said Battalion Chief Ryan Fox. The homeowner had been painting the two-story house’s interior and had removed all of the doors inside, which allowed the fire to spread easily and rapidly, Fox said.
