A large fire damaged two homes in a West Seattle neighborhood Thursday night.
The fire broke out just after 10:00 p.m. in the back of a home in 5200 block of 36th Ave. SW and spread to a home next door.
"I just heard the neighbors screaming," said neighbor Impala Nance. "I came out to see what was happening and I saw that the back of the neighbor's house, one house down was on fire."
When firefighters arrived they saw huge flames shooting out of the roof, towards electrical lines above and called in a second alarm.
"The whole back of their house was on fire and the neighbor right next door then ran over and tried to put out the fire because it jumped over to her house," said Nance.
