A 3 alarm fire destroyed a commercial building in Vancouver, WA early Sunday morning. At approximately 5:40 a.m. on Sunday, January 15 the Vancouver Fire Department was dispatched to a commercial structure fire at 134th Avenue and Fourth Plain Blvd. in Vancouver, WA. Upon arrival Engine 4 saw a large volume of fire coming from the structure and immediately sounded a 2nd alarm. Due to the large volume of fire the initial attack was defensive, meaning that the fire was attacked from the exterior of the building. A 3rd alarm was sounded at 0611, resulting in a total of 36 personnel from the VFD and Clark County Fire District 3. The fire did not spread to any other buildings. The incident commander called the fire under control at 7:11 a.m.. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the office of the Clark County Fire Marshal.
