Another suspicious house fire in Yakima
YAKIMA -- The Yakima Fire Department says another suspicious fire erupted at a boarded-up , abandoned building Tuesday morning.
YFD says the fire at the 400 block of I Street was reported just before 4 a.m. by someone passing by.
When crews arrived they found a large fire burning on the back side of the building that had spread through the home.
Crews knew it was a dangerous building due to previous fires, and so fought it from the outside and used thermal imaging cameras to confirm no one was inside the house.
YFD confirms no one was found in the burning building or nearby.
Fire investigators say they have determined the fire was set by a person, but don't know what the intent could have been.
The fire caused approximately $50,000 worth of damage.
