Yakima firefighters search for transients in burning building
YAKIMA, WASH:

Yakima firefighters are investigating a fire late Thursday night that they are now calling suspicious.

The fire broke out on the 1100 block of North 2nd street about 10 o'clock last night. Fire crews found heavy smoke and flames coming from a small outbuilding, at first they thought transients were inside the structure.

Firefighters went into rescue mode and entered the building but no one was inside. The building is apparently used as a gathering place for runaways. It is a complete loss.
