Family of five escape early morning house fire in Yakima
YAKIMA, Wash. - Firefighters say no one is hurt after a family's home in Yakima caught fire early Wednesday morning.
Crews with the Yakima Fire Department (YFD) were called to the 800 block of S. 4th Ave. around 5:30 a.m. to find flames at the home.
Firefighters said the smoke alarm alerted the family of five and everyone inside the burning home was able to get out safely.
Firefighters said two kids were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation, but have since been released.
Fire crews said this blaze took a long time to extinguish. They said the house had undergone multiple remodels, making some void spaces in the home difficult to access.
The cause of this fire has not been determined.
Firefighters remain at the scene as of 10:30 a.m., and expect to be there investigating for nearly three more hours.
