Three adult residents and two dogs safely evacuated before firefighters arrived to douse a fire that consumed their two-story home in Auburn early Wednesday morning, the Valley Regional Fire Authority reported.
Firefighters responded at 2 a.m. to a report of a fire at the home in the 200 block of M Street Northeast. One of the residents attempted to extinguish the fire with a garden hose but was unsuccessful, the VRFA said. Upon arrival firefighters discovered that the fire had spread to the attic and a second alarm was called.
There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters.
Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority and South King Fire & Rescue assisted VRFA crews.
Investigators are on scene working to determine the cause of the fire.
