KENNEWICK, Wash. — The Kennewick Fire Department (KFD) responded to an apartment fire on Friday night.

The call came in around 11:07 p.m. on November 5th. In less than 5 minutes, several units had arrived to the 400 block of North Arthur Street in Kennewick.

KFD says the fire appeared from a second story window. Crews worked to extinguish the fire, with additional units checking to make sure the fire didn’t spread to additional units.
