Pullman apartment fire displaces WSU football players

Pullman Fire Department

There were no injuries, but now a lot of Cougars - including at least two football players - are left scrambling.

A number of WSU students are looking for a new place to live this coming fall after a fire ravaged the under-construction Grove apartments early this morning in Pullman. The apartments were scheduled to open in time for this school year.

Among the students affected? At least a couple of WSU football players:



Nobody was hurt in the fire, which is considered suspicious; Pullman Fire Department Chief Mike Heston told the Spokesman-Review that there was no heat source in the apartments that could have triggered this sort of thing.

Neil Stover decided to take a quick trip over to the site today and take some pictures:


Check out what's left of that Uhaul truck. A number of construction vehicles exploded, and the fire department said the flames reached 100 feet in height.


It burned so hot that some neighboring apartment complexes (Boulder Creek and Steptoe Village) were evacuated. How hot?


No word yet on what the university is going to do to help the students, but I'm sure they'll do whatever they can.
