A residential structure fire that started early Saturday morning caused about $175,000 in damage, according to the Olympia Fire Department. No injuries were reported.
According to the department:
About 1:05 a.m. Saturday, firefighters responded to a residential structure fire in the 1300 block of Olympic Drive N.W. Although hampered by the live electrical service that was "popping and arcing," firefighters were able to slow the fire from inside, but the fire did spread to a second room and through the first-floor ceiling to a second bedroom before the power was turned off and the fire was completely extinguished.
A second building on the property was not damaged. The fire was reported out at 2:21 a.m.
Three Olympia engine companies, one ladder company, two medic units, one aid unit and a command unit responded to the fire. Lacey Fire District 3 also responded with one additional engine. The cause of the fire still is under investigation and structure and content loss is estimated at $175,000.
