A two-alarm blaze struck a Kent apartment building Sunday morning, June 3.

The fire started around 9 a.m. at the Apex West Hill Apartment complex on 45th Place South (map below).

When firefighters arrived, flames were visible, rising from Building F, KOMO reported.

Officials believe the fire may have started outside the building and spread to the attic.

A neighbor told KOMO News he and others tried using four fire extinguishers to attack the blaze before firefighters arrived.
