Morning House Fire in Richland

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - An update about an early morning house fire in Richland.

Fire crews throughout the Tri-Cities responded to fight the fire around two this morning on Brookwood Avenue.

Investigators say they think the fire started in a garage and spread into the attic. They also say the family got some extra fast help getting out of the house.

"These people were woken up before their smoke alarms even went off by their neighbors, saying hey your house is on fire,a little after two in the morning," said James Jordon, Asst. Fire Marshall, Richland Fire Dept.

Everyone in the house made it out without any injuries. But a family member says their pets didn't make it out alive. Firefighters say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
