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.

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