A fire at a west Olympia apartment complex was quickly extinguished before 7 a.m. Thursday, which was good news for a number of senior citizens, a fire official said.
Fire, smoke and water damaged a ground floor unit in the 700 block of Black Lake Boulevard, resulting in a loss of about $30,000, Olympia assistant fire chief Mike Buchanan said Thursday.
One person was displaced, but that person was not injured, he said.
Buchanan praised the safety features of the Capital Place complex, saying the alarm and sprinkler system did what they were supposed to do.
The fire, contained to a couch, is under investigation, he said.
