House fire on Kent’s West Hill displaces two

Attic fire on 30th Avenue South

Two people were displaced by a house fire in the 25300 block of 30th Avenue South on Kent’s West Hill.

Firefighters from Puget Sound Fire and South King Fire and Rescue were dispatched at 4:30 p.m. Thursday to reports of an attic fire in a single-story house, according to a Puget Sound Fire media release.

Before they arrived on scene, firefighters could see a smoke column and added additional emergency units.

Although the fire caused a great deal of damage in the attic space to the rafters and the roof, firefighters were able to keep most of the damage from entering the living space.

Nobody was injured. Red Cross assisted the displaced residents.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
