No injuries reported in Olympia fire Saturday morning

No one was injured in a Saturday morning fire at the Westlakes Apartments, according to the Olympia Fire Department.

Firefighters responded to the apartment complex at 1919 Evergreen Park Drive about 6:40 a.m. after residents reported a fire on the second floor of an eight-unit building. All of the building’s residents had evacuated by the time fire crews arrived.

The fire was confined to the apartment where the fire is believed to have started and to the attic above a neighboring apartment. Firefighters were able to contain the fire by about 7 a.m.

The cause of the fire had not been determined, and damage was estimated at $70,000. Residents of four apartments were displaced because of fire damage, and the American Red Cross was working to assist them.

Olympia Fire Department responded with four engines, one ladder truck, two medic units and a command unit. Additional units from Lacey Fire District 3 and Thurston County Fire District 9 also responded.
