A fire burned a commercial building located at 137 SW 154th Street in Burien early Tuesday morning, Aug. 3, 2021.

Multiple fire units from Burien/Highline, Tukwila, and Puget Sound Fire responded to the blaze at around 3:30 a.m.

UPDATE: Earlier – as first referenced in a dispatch call tweet – we posted that the fire appeared to be at the Andrew House Condos, a 16-unit building located at 124 SW 154th Street. However, the blaze was actually southwest and across the street from that complex in a vacant building located at 137 SW 154th Street.

Video shot shortly after the first units arrived shows the structure fully engulfed.

No word yet on the cause, whether there were any injuries or if any residents were displaced.

The King County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigation Unit is investigating.

“Please avoid the area,” King County Fire District No. 2 tweeted at 6:02 a.m.
