A Kennewick Police Officer reported seeing smoke billowing upwards from a building in that area, and Kennewick Fire Crews responded. Upon arrival, they located the blaze, which turned out to be a residence at 620 South Garfield, with some of the fire in between the structures.
Reports indicate some smoke may have entered surrounding structures, but the bakery and other commercial structures were OK. The residential fire is also believed to have involved a few vehicles as well. Some power lines in the area were also reportedly downed by the fire.
No injuries were reported, but the cleanup efforts took some time. The investigation into what caused the fire continues.
The fire appeared to be in an area directly behind (West) of the USA Auto lot on Columbia Drive.
