Just after 3 p.m., crews from South King Fire and Puget Sound Fire responded to the Des Moines Station Apartments for reports of a fire in the laundry room. Upon their arrival, they saw the building had been evacuated, as well as smoke coming from the building. Crews then entered and quickly extinguished the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
