YAKIMA--A morning fire leaves one Yakima family without a place to stay.
The fire at a home on the 800 block of South Seventh Street started shortly before 9:00 a.m. Wednesday.
Firefighters are blaming a faulty electrical device for the fire.
A woman and her two children live at the home, but were not there when the fire started. The family's dog did not make it out.
The home is a total loss. Firefighters estimated damages at $80,000.
The family does have insurance; the Red Cross will be helping them to get back on their feet.
