ABERDEEN, Wash. – The Aberdeen Fire Department responded to a small fire near where the Lady Washington used to be moored on the East side of Aberdeen. Battalion Chief Kelly Neimi tells us they were called to the construction site near Wal-Mart around 10 last night, a small fire on an unused-unmaintained pier had spread to nearby land in between the pier and construction trailers.
Crews were on scene for just under an hour, no injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
The store will be located at the existing location at 909 E. Wishkah W (Hwy. 12101 E.). The 36,000 square foot expansion will bring the final size to approximately 150,000 square feet. The store will add up to 50 quality jobs for associates once the project is complete. Additional temporary contract jobs during the store’s construction will be created during the expansion construction. The store currently employs some 290 associates.
