Pasco Home Destroyed in 2-Alarm Blaze

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.  - Firefighters evacuated several homes in East Pasco Friday morning while battling a 2-alarm blaze.

Crews from seven jurisdictions responded to a home on the 600 block of North Waldemor around 9:30 a.m.  

A total of about 40 firefighters worked to contain the flames before they spread, but the winds didn't make it easy on them.


"This had a lot of potential. I mean, we could have had two houses going on this event very easily, and it was just the quick actions and the training and the ability to work together that really kept this thing within the structure of origin," said Pasco Fire Battalion Chief Dave Hare. 

No one was home at the time of the fire, but crews were able to rescue a dog. It's unknown what started the fire. The home is a total loss.
