UPDATE: Firefighters returned to the scene this morning when the fire rekindled. Read The Olympian’s coverage about the second response.

Firefighters responded to a Lacey apartment fire Sunday evening in the 2600 block of Wilderness Drive Southeast, just after 10 p.m.

None of the residents were home during the blaze. Firefighters rescued a dog and a cat from the building, and extinguished the flames within 10 minutes of arriving,  a spokesperson for Lacey Fire said.

Investigators think food left cooking on the stove might have started the fire, officials said.

The blaze was contained to one apartment in the four-plex building. Initial damages are estimated at $46,000.
