WEST VALLEY, Wash. -- A house fire, fueled by high winds forced the closure of Tieton Drive this evening.

It broke out just after 7PM near the 11000 block of Tieton in West Valley.

Fire crews say it started as a brush fire, but quickly spread to a nearby home, engulfing the attic. Crews from West Valley, Yakima City, and Highland helped put the blaze out.

There was one woman home during the fire, but she did make it out safely.

No word on how the fire got started.
