Cause

The cause of the fire has been deemed by the King County Fire Investigator as  accidental.

Resources

Firefighters from Maple Valley, King County Fire District 47 and Puget Sound Fire were dispatched and the first due reported seeing fire from as far away as two-mile from the fire ground.

Fire Operations

It would take about an hour for fire crews to put out the fire that had spread from the vehicle to contents inside the garage up into the rafters.  Tireless efforts paid off by stopping further extension of the fire from reaching  the living space of the home which successfully enabled the homeowner to salvage most of his personal property.
