Fire destroys home on Thompson Lane

A home at 4831 Thompson Lane S.E. was destroyed by fire early Wednesday, according to Lacey Fire District 3.

According to the district:

Dispatchers received multiple calls about the fire, with some people saying the flames were shooting up as high as 30 feet. The city of Olympia, fire districts 6, 7 and 8, and Southeast Thurston Fire assisted.

The home was valued at $84,000 by the Thurston County Assessor’s Office, and preliminary investigation suggests that a faulty chimney caused the fire. The home’s lone occupant was uninjured.
