Sunnyside Garage Fire Causes $600K in Damages

Posted: Updated:


YAKIMA, Wash.--Firefighters are trying to determine what started a fire overnight in Sunnyside.
A family living along the 2100 Block of Scoon Road woke up to popping noises late Wednesday night. That's when they found their unattached garage and surrounding trees engulfed in flames.
A Ferrari, three boats, a travel trailer and $100,000 worth of contractor tools were destroyed.
"To move on to be in the interior of moving and examining items, need to give the insurance company that option if they want to bring in an investigator, which I'm sure they will," said Ron Rutherford, a Deputy Fire Marshal for Yakima County.  "And then we work together side by side."
Investigators said they don't have a reason to believe the fire is suspicious at this time, and they're hoping to determine a cause by Friday evening.
