Federal Way Auto Wrecking suffers total loss in fire

Federal Way Auto Wrecking suffered a total loss after a fire engulfed their 2,600 -square-foot building Wednesday morning.

South King Fire and Rescue responded to the business, 37430 Military Road South, at 1:18 a.m.

Deputy Chief Gordon Goodsell said the building was very old and large, which required firefighters to be there for about seven hours as they worked to extinguish the fire.

As with the fire that occurred at Center Plaza, insurance agents will work to determine the total cost of damage. The King County Sheriff’s Office will follow-up if there is reason to believe the cause was criminal, Goodsell said.
