Fireworks Cause House Fire in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - Investigators say fireworks are to blame for a house fire Wednesday along the 5000 block of Scenic Drive.

Yakima firefighters want to remind residents not to use fireworks in neighborhoods and to report any fireworks use immediately.

------------------------------

YAKIMA, Wash. - A Yakima firefighter is out of the hospital after he was injured at a fire on the five thousand block of scenic drive Wednesday night.

Crews got the call around 10:30, and found heavy flames in the home when they arrived.

Firefighters had a hard time controlling the blaze with normal hoses, and had to call in an aerial ladder truck with a much more powerful nozzle to put out the flames.

"The fire came in late last night and it was a very stubborn fire, by the time the first arriving crew got there, the attic space was completely involved," said Fire Captain Tom Schneider.

A firefighter was injured during the mop up when a sheet rock wall fell over and hit him in the head.

He was treated and released from the hospital Wednesday morning.
