Fire damages Pullman laser arena

Staff reports

Investigators Sunday were looking into a fire that damaged a popular laser arena south of Pullman.

No one was injured in the 2 a.m. Sunday blaze at Cougar Laser Arena but much of the facility, including video arcades and mini-golf terrain, were damaged, said Ryan Scharnhorst, assistant fire chief of the Pullman Fire Department.

A neighboring business, Wysup Imports and More, was not damaged.

“The crews did a good job of making a quick stop of the fire so that it didn’t endanger the structure,” Scharnhorst said.

Firefighters were alerted to reports of smoke at about 2 a.m. Sunday, after the business had closed for the night.

The Cougar-themed business is not owned by Washington State University, he said.
