Valley Regional Fire Authority crews and area firefighters are battling a three-alarm fire late Tuesday afternoon in the 100 block of East Main Street in downtown Auburn.

Firefighters and ladder trucks were on the scene of a massive fire in the bottom floor of the Auburn Heritage Building at 134 E. Main St.

The 21,000-square-foot, historic building, built in 1921, according to the King County Assessor’s Office., is of mixed use, part residential, with apartments and commercial spaces.

Roads were closed at Main Street between Auburn Way and Auburn Avenue.
