Fire destroys truck, power poles in Rainier

A fire destroyed a truck, two power poles and several transformers in Rainier on Saturday.

According to S.E. Thurston Fire Authority Capt. Don Wilson:

About 6:30 p.m. Saturday, fire crews were dispatched to the 16500 block of Vail Loop Road SE, Rainier.

The fire is thought to have started on the truck, which then ignited two power poles and five to six transformers, Wilson said.

Fire crews had to wait for power to be turned off before they could put out the fire, he said.

A cause and damage estimate for the fire were not immediately available.
