Three adults escape early morning residential fire in Auburn

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.
