Three people were displaced following a fire at their downtown Olympia apartment building Thursday night, according to the Olympia Fire Department.
Crews responded to the building at 515 Adams St. SE about 8 p.m. The second-floor fire was out within five minutes of their arrival.
No injuries were reported. The cause was determined to be a faulty power strip, according to a OFD tweet.
KIRO reports a second apartment was damaged by water.
OFD says the building had working smoke detectors but no sprinklers. The cost of the damage was estimated to be $40,000.
