A busy two days continued for Kent firefighters as they extinguished a house fire Friday afternoon on the West Hill, the fourth structure fire in two days.
Both occupants were able to get out safely. Red Cross assisted them.
Firefighters from Puget Sound Fire and South King Fire and Rescue responded and kept the damage to a minimum, though a small amount of smoke got into the living space.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
A Zone 3 rehab unit and Medic One also responded to the incident. The Flood Guys assisted the family, free of charge, by boarding up the damaged portions of the house.
A house fire broke out Thursday in the 25300 block of 30th Avenue South, just one street over from Friday’s fire. Firefighters also responded to a restaurant fire on West Meeker Street and an apartment fire on Fifth Avenue South on Thursday.
