YELM — Fire investigators were trying to determine the cause of a Tuesday afternoon fire that destroyed a home south of Yelm.
Mark King, Southeast Thurston Fire Authority chief, said fire firefighters arrived at 12:30 p.m. to find the the home at 133rd Avenue Southeast and Solberg Road Southeast engulfed in flames.
“It was fully involved on all four sides when we got there,” King said.
The fire was brought under control about two hours later, but some hot spots were still being mopped up Wednesday, according to King.
Residents living in the home were away at the time of the blaze and no one was injured, he said.
Also responding to the fire were crews from East Olympia Fire District 6, McLane Black Lane Fire Department, South Thurston Fire & EMS, and Thurston County Fire District 17.
