UPDATE | Renton Firefighters were dispatched to a house fire in the 2000 block of SE 18th Street on Saturday afternoon, September 19, 2020.
First due firefighters reported a fully engulfed two-story residence with an additional brush fire. An initial fire attack ensued while some units were tasked with structure protection of homes in the Rolling Hills neighborhood.
Fire due E313 found heavy smoke and fire in the garage and into the attic compromising the roof of the home. A quick egress by fire crews limited extension to exposure homes and further damage to the fire structure itself. The garage itself appeared to be completely destroyed.
The fire is now out and the structure has suffered extensive fire and smoke damage to the garage and to rest of the home.
Resources that responded to this fire represented the Renton Fire Department, Medics and Zone 3 Fire Rehab.
The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire. The cause and damage assessment of the structure is pending a further investigation by the FIU Investigator.
No injuries occurred to firefighters or other citizens in the area.
