Multiple agencies were able to knock down a large structure fire in central White Center Monday morning.
The three-alarm fire started shortly before 6 a.m. in a strip mall located in the 9600 block of 16 Avenue SW, near SW Roxbury Street.
Just after 7 a.m., King County Fire District No. 2 said that crews had successfully "knocked down" the flames. Crews were taking a defensive approach to fighting the flames, according to Puget Sound Fire.
The fire is in the same area a two-alarm fire gutted several businesses in July, which was ruled an arson. No word has been given on cause of the latest fire or whether there have been any injuries.
Everyone is advised to avoid the area while crews continue cleanup, which is expected to take several hours.
