KENT, Wash. - Firefighters worked to put out a flames at a Kent home early Friday.
The fire at the home at 40th Avenue South and South 271st Place started at about 3:40 a.m.
Investigators say it appears that the fire started at the back of the home. Crews used larger hoses than normal to keep the fire from spreading in the dry conditions.
“The ground is dry. It would take nothing for a fire to move and we're not to the end of that period,” said Randy Droppert with Kent fire.
Both floors of the house were damaged.
No one was home when the fire started.
