Northshore firefighters respond to structure fire
The Northshore Fire Department was dispatched to the 4000 block of 196th Court in Lake Forrest Park for a residential structure fire at 12:36 p.m. on March 21. The owners, who were inside the home at the time, were alerted by smoke coming from the garage area.
They attempted to extinguish the fire with an extinguisher and garden hose.
Upon arrival, the firefighters found light smoke coming from the west exterior wall and eves of the two-story home. They quickly knocked down the remaining flames and were able to contain the fire to an exterior wall. There was some minor smoke damage in one of the adjacent bedrooms. Estimated damage from the fire and smoke is approximately $10,000. The Northshore firefighters were assisted by units from the Shoreline Fire Department.
The King County Fire Investigation Unit has determined the cause of the fire to be a malfunction of an electrical device. There were no firefighter or civilian injuries.
