Lacey Fire investigating Sunday blaze as suspicious

Lacey Fire District 3 is investigating a Sunday fire in a vacant residence as suspicious, Battalion Chief Steve Crimmins said.

About 6 a.m. Sunday, fire crews were dispatched to the 7400 block of Mullen Road Southeast after a neighbor reported the fire.

The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes, but because the home was vacant and had no electricity, the department is investigating it as suspicious, Crimmins said.

The fire was confined to one room, but there was smoke damage throughout the residence, he said.
