Lower Yakima Valley firefighters found the TV Towne building fully engulfed after arriving on the scene late yesterday afternoon (Thursday). Here, firemen pour water onto the back of the building as the fire roars nearly unhindered. The furniture and appliance store, as well as its contents, were destroyed in the blaze. Early estimates are that the damages will exceed well over $1 million. Of the three boys believed to be responsible for the fire, one of the youths, a 12-year-old, has been charged with arson.
