Puget Sound Fire crews responded and doused a fire that burned five vehicles in a Kent car lot early Saturday morning.

Flames were seen coming from a landscaping supply yard at the 700 block of North Central around 6 a.m.

Puget Sound Fire Department Engine 71 arrived and discovered the fire was in the middle of a few vehicles being stored on the lot and moved to an access gate off of Central.

Despite difficulty in getting to the middle of the car lot, where the fire was, crews were able to quickly put water on the five vehicles that were burning. Division 7 arrived and took over command of the fire and added one more fire engine. The combined water from all three units extinguished the fire.

The vehicles were not occupied and all fire crews were safe.

Puget Sound Fire Investigator put the dollar loss at less than $1000.00.

At the time of the release the cause of the fire was undetermined.
