Motel Fire Pasco Washington

Wednesday morning, Pasco firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at the Airport Motel off of Fourth in Pasco. The fire, which engulfed two rooms on the second floor and spread through the attic into two other rooms, is believed to be caused by some of the remodeling work that was happening at the motel.

This special wrap also prevents the tenants and homeowners from being able to use decks or get any sunlight coming inside. The wrap is a benefit for the builders because it allows for them to work even in
