Firefighters are still investigating the cause of a fire Saturday that destroyed Kennewick Vision Care on Clearwater Avenue.

They say the blaze likely started in the back of the building and quickly spread throughout.

Nearby homes were evacuated while firefighters doused the flames.

Damage is listed at half a million dollars.

The co-owners of the building say they will likely lease a nearby building so they can continue to see patients until their clinic is rebuilt.
