    LAKEWOOD, Wash. - A Sunday afternoon fire at a Lakewood apartment complex displaced four families, according to West Pierce Fire & Rescue.

    The fire happened early in the afternoon at the Arbor Pointe Apartments, 11432 105th Ave. SW, West Pierce Fire Battalion Chief Scott Adams said.

    One resident was home at the time and was able to make it outside safely, as were several pets. No one was injured.
