5 Alarm Fire in Downtown Renton

A 5 alarm fire destroyed a building on Wells Ave. So. in downtown Renton last night that housed The Comic Den, A-1 Vacuum and Locksmith and several apartments. According to several reports the fire broke out sometime after 7:00pm. Renton Fire Department was joined by SeaTac, Kent and Skyway Fire Departments to help battle the blaze. Several local residents who resided in the apartments located in the destroyed building have been left homeless. The Red Cross was on the scene to help any of them who needed places to stay. All the other tenants who live in adjacent apartments are not allowed to go back to their buildings for 48 hours. According to officials they are excavating the damaged building tomorrow.
