WASHOUGAL — An early morning fire destroyed a laundromat in Washougal. Witnesses posted photos of flames and smoke shooting into the air above Riverside Laundry at 921 4th Street.
The Camas-Washougal Fire Department says the fire started at 12:42 a.m. First arriving crews called a second alarm, bringing a total of eleven units from Vancouver Fire Department and East County Fire and Rescue.
