Suspicious House Fire

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Fire investigators say an early morning house fire on the corner of East Walnut and Naches Avenues is "very suspicious".

Crews from the Yakima Fire Department responded to the call at about 1 a.m. Thursday morning. They had the flames extinguished by 2:30 a.m., but are calling the house a total loss.

Investigators say the house has been vacant for about a year, leading them to believe that someone may have started the fire intentionally.
