Mill Creek home under renovation destroyed in fire

MILL CREEK, Wash. — A home under renovation in Mill Creek was destroyed in a fire early Friday.

Firefighters arrived at the home just off State Route 96 at around 3 a.m. and found it was engulfed in flames, according to Leslie Hynes with South County Fire.

It took firefighters about 45 minutes to get the flames under control.

The house was being remodeled and the renovations were 90% complete, but now the home is a total loss, firefighters said.

The home belongs to a family of five, but no one was home when the fire broke out.

Crews remain at the scene looking for hot spots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
