Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash -- Fire fighters are trying to determine the cause of a fire in Yakima.

The fire happened just before one 1 a.m. Saturday morning at the 100 block of South 8th St.

Fire fighters arrived on the scene to find heavy smoke coming from the one story house. Security bars covered the windows, making it difficult to get inside the house.

Fire fighters say it was fortunate that no one was inside because they could have been trapped. Total damage was about 40-thousand dollars.
