Two people were displaced after their residence in 100 block of Meadow Drive west of Chehalis caught fire Tuesday morning.
Nobody was injured and the two occupants made it out safely, thanks to smoke alarms.
According to a press release from Lewis County Fire District 6, at around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, dispatch got a call from one of the house’s occupants, saying they awoke to find a bathroom ceiling fan caught fire and was spreading to the roof.
