Brush fire spreads, destroys 121 public storage units in Puyallup (PHOTOS)

PUYALLUP -- A brush fire moved to a public storage facility on Canyon Road in Puyallup Friday afternoon and destroyed 121 storage units, Central Pierce Fire said. Officials said they had the fire under control by 6 p.m.

One of three storage buildings at the facility is a complete loss, Central Pierce Fire officials said.

Occupants of nearby apartments at one point were put on standby for possible evacuation.  But no evacuations were ordered. The apartments have exterior heat damage, however, officials said.

Businesses to the south were evacuated because of heavy smoke in the area.

No injuries were reported.
