Fire engulfs garage in Lynnwood; heat damages home next door

LYNNWOOD, Wash. — A large garage fire in Lynnwood caused a chaotic scene on Saturday night as South County Fire crews responded quickly to the scene.

A public information officer with South County Fire says they received reports of a garage fire on the 5200 block of 172nd Southwest Street.

Crews prevented the fire from spreading to other homes, but one neighboring home sustained heat damage.

South County Fire says the family inside the home was able to get out safely, but the garage sustained major damage.

It’s still not clear if the home is a total loss.

The family spoke with KIRO 7 off-camera and said while this was a scary situation, they are thankful everyone is ok.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
