Kenmore fire displaces seven people

The cause of the fire is still unknown.

A fire engulfed a Kenmore home on July 28, displacing seven people.

Firefighters were called at about 2:35 p.m. Sunday to the 6200 block of Northeast 203rd Place, where flames could be seen from the air.

According to Northshore Fire Department fire inspector and public information officer Wendy Booth, two of the seven residents were out of town during the fire and two other residents were not in the home at the time of the fire.

Booth said the remaining three residents got out of the home with no reported injuries. Two cats were also in the home at the time of the fire. One cat was rescued by firefighters, one cat fled the home and has not been located since.

Red Cross services were offered to the displaced residents, but they are staying with family members, Booth said.

The cause of the fire is unknown. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the King County investigation unit. A report is expected to be released in about one week.

A GoFundMe campaign at tinyurl.com/y56gqqdt was launched Monday to help the displaced residents. The campaign had raised $600 by Reporter publication.
