Garage Fire Displaces Family Easter Eve

A family is displaced by a possible illegal fire just before Easter.

Federal Way, WA: Around 4:30pm 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.
