2-story building in Bellevue destroyed by fire

BELLEVUE — A two-story commercial building was destroyed in a three-alarm fire Monday morning in Bellevue.

KOMO-TV reported a passer-by called 911 around 5:45 a.m. after seeing smoke and flames coming from the Forum West Building on Bellevue-Redmond Road. By 7:30 a.m., smoke was still hanging in the air, but dozens of firefighters had doused most of the flames.

No one was in the building when the fire began, and no injuries were reported.

Lt. Troy Donlin of the Bellevue Fire Department said the building is a “total loss” and that the east side of the structure had partially collapsed.
