YAKIMA, Wash.-- A house fire in Yakima sent some neighbors running for help Thursday morning.
The blaze broke out at a home on the 900 block of N. 29th Avenue around 10am.
Firefighters were able to keep the flames contained to the back of the home.
Neighbors say this is the second fire at the home in the last few months.
"Well, I was actually doing yard work and I saw black smoke coming up and when I leaned back, I saw flames. So, natural response was to run down the road and make sure that nobody was in the house," neighbor Jerrianne DeWesse said.
Luckily, no one was home when the fire broke out.
Crews estimate about $50,000 in damage. They believe a pellet stove caused the blaze.
