Second Fire in Two Days Raises Suspicions

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA - A fire erupted at the 400 block of 3rd Street Tuesday morning, just down the street from the scene of a fatal fire on Monday.  Fire crews arrived on scene at around 2:00 A.M. and were able to knock the fire down quickly.  Nobody was injured, and no one is currently living in the house.

Fire officials say the fire raises suspicions for a couple of reasons.  Nobody was living in the house, so there was no gas or electricity running to it.  It also is down the street from Monday's fatal fire at the 400 block of 4st street.  Both fires happened in the early morning hours.  Both fires are being called suspicious.

Yakima fire has not ruled the two connected yet, as they continue to investigate.
