At 2:44 PM on Wednesday, June 29, 2016, crews were dispatched to a report of smoke coming from a single-family home at the 17000 block of 31st Drive SE south of Mill Creek.
When firefighters arrived they found smoke and fire coming from the window of an upstairs bedroom window. Crews worked quickly to extinguish the fire and were able to contain the fire to one room.
The mother and young child were home at the time of the fire. They were able to get out of the house and to safety before firefighters arrived.
Due to extensive smoke damage on the second floor, the American Red Cross is assisting the family with housing needs. 1-800 Board Up is securing the home.
The exact cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no injuries reported.
