RENTON HOUSE SUFFERS EXTENSIVE FIRE DAMAGE

UPDATE | Renton Firefighters were dispatched to a house fire in the 2000 block of SE 18th Street on Saturday afternoon, September 19, 2020.

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.
