May 4, 2019 – A fire that heavily damaged a home in the 25300 block of 236 Ct. SE, is under investigation today.
Puget Sound RFA firefighters arrived at 1:30 am, to find the entire second floor of the two-story home burning. Because the roof was already collapsing, firefighters were only able to initially search the first floor of the house. Once the fire was under control, firefighters were able to search the second floor.
Searches of the building found no occupants. Neighbors were able to contact the residents and confirm that no one was home. A dog was rescued and is doing well.
Due to the roof collapse, much of the firefighting was done “defensively,” or from the outside, until the Incident Commander was confident that it was safe to send firefighters inside to extinguish the remaining pockets of fire.
Belfor Restoration is assisting the family with a free board-up service to protect the owner’s property.
