Tanning bed light cause of Silverdale Mall fire

A malfunctioning bulb in a tanning bed is believed to be the cause of a fire that destroyed six businesses in a strip mall in Silverdale on Sunday, Kitsap fire officials said.  

The three-alarm fire at the mall, located at the corner of Silverdale Way and Kitsap Mall Boulevard, started in the Desert Sun tanning salon at about 2:15 p.m. It  spread quickly along the length of the building in open attic space, fire officials said. 

The building was not equipped with sprinklers, which were not required when the building was constructed, according to fire officials.

No injuries were reported.
