LYNNWOOD — Investigators believe a fire at a Lynnwood restaurant this week started near a water heater, officials said Friday.
The fire broke out about 2 p.m. Wednesday at The Local Yolk at 4025 196th Street SW.
Diners and staffers got out safely, but the fire caused up to $1 million in damage, according to the Lynnwood Fire Department.
Investigators were unable to pinpoint what exactly started the fire. Most likely, it was caused by combustible items being stored too close to the water heater.
