Fast moving garage fire displaces family


Illegal outdoor burn possibly to blame in fire that displaces entire family Easter Eve

Federal Way, WA: Around 4:30 PM crews with South King Fire & Rescue responded to a reported residential structure fire in the 34900 block of 26th Court SW. Upon arrival crews found a fully involved garage fire extending into the home.

During the initial fire attack crews found hoarder conditions in the garage preventing access to extinguish the fire.

Earlier in the day fire crews were at that address for a reported illegal burn complaint due to the resident burning materials in the backyard. At this point it is unknown if that is related to the fire. Fire Investigators were dispatched.

No injuries. The fire did result in the displacement of all occupants which were 2 Adults and 3 Children. The American Red Cross Northwest Chapter was called in to assist.
