Fire Breaks Out at a House In West Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- A house in West Pasco goes up in flames. It happened at 7908 Deschutes Avenue.

Pasco Fire Chief Greg Garcia told us this family was in the backyard barbecuing, but the fire broke out in the front of the house inside the garage.

Firefighters say they were able to put the fire out in 20 minutes. We talked to one man who says his wife saw the fire and called for help.

"She called 911. About five minutes after that, flames started shooting up from the front and started getting the top of the garage. Pretty much burned out the whole garage within about 10 minutes," said Kelly Huffaker a neighbor.

Fire Chief Greg Garcia says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
