South King Fire and Rescue crews responded to a structure fire July 10 near the intersection of 371st Street and 28th Avenue South, just outside of Federal Way. The two-story home was 100 percent involved in the garage and master bedroom, which was above the garage. The rest of the house was 50 percent involved when crews arrived. Crews began attacking the fire from the inside; however they were forced to retreat to the outside and move to a defensive stance for safety after the fire spread through the attic.

At the time of the fire, there were three people inside — one adult and two children. Everyone got out safely. The house was built three years ago and was described by the owner as “their dream home.” Milton fire department also responded to the blaze as backup. Fire investigators are still determining what started the fire.
