Damage from this afternoon’s massive fire at the Lynnview Apartments is estimated at $3 million. Firefighters remained on the scene in the 5800 block of 200th Street SW late in the evening to put out the hot spots.
The fire broke out around 4:30 p.m. The sheer size of the fire, combined with nearby power lines, forced crews to take a defensive stance and fight the fire from the outside. Investigators believe the fire was caused by a deep fryer.
At least 35 families are displaced by the fire. The Red Cross is assisting them tonight.
