LYNNWOOD — Five people were displaced due to a Lynnwood house fire Sunday afternoon, fire officials said.
Around 1:20 p.m., firefighters responded to the fire at a two-story home in the 2900 block of 208th Place SW, said South County Fire spokesperson Leslie Hynes. They could see a column of black smoke from 2 miles away. Flames in the garage reached the second story of the house.
Firefighters were made aware of possible gun ammunition and propane in the garage that could affect their efforts, the spokesperson said. When ammunition heats up, it pops.
There were no injuries, Hynes said. Damage was estimated at over $430,000.
The Snohomish County Fire Marshal’s Office was investigating the cause of the fire Monday. A battery fire from the two Tesla cars in the driveway had been ruled out, however, Hynes said. Investigators believe the fire spread from the house to the cars, not the other way around.
Hynes estimated 32 firefighters responded.
