Fire damages Edmonds-area garage

EDMONDS — An Edmonds-area family of four was displaced Sunday after a garage fire caused smoke damage to their home.

The fire started just before 2 p.m. at a two-story house in the 15100 block of 62nd Ave. W, said Leslie Hynes, spokeswoman for Snohomish County Fire District 1.

A 12-year-old boy was home alone at the time.

Crews arrived to find flames inside the garage and heavy black smoke throughout the house. The fire was extinguished in about 15 minutes. No injuries were reported.

Damage was estimated at $80,000, mostly from smoke.

“Investigators have been unable to determine an exact cause, but at this time they do not believe this is a suspicious fire,” Hynes said.

Crews also responded from Lynnwood.
