Fire Destroys Wapato Home

Posted: Updated:

WAPATO, Wash. -- An early morning fire destroyed a home in Wapato on Friday.

Crews were called to the house on North Oldenway Rd. in Wapato at about 3am. They say one person was inside when the fire started, but made it out unharmed.

The house was fully engullfed when crews arrived and they're calling it a total loss.

Road conditions and fog slowed their response some, but five departments were on hand to put the fire out.

Investigators said the extensive damage could make it difficult to determine a cause.
