PHOTO: A fire destroyed a detached garage and two cars in Kennewick Friday afternoon.
Crews responded to the fire at 1588 W. 21 Place near South Rainier Street around 2:45 p.m. Heavy smoke poured from the garage as they attempted to put it out. No residents or firefighters were injured. The fire did not spread to any surrounding buildings. However, a neighbor said the windows of their home were open, and they were concerned about smoke damage.
KAPP-KVEW was told the homeowners were in the garage, then left for 10-15 minutes to go inside the house when they started seeing smoke.
The cause of the fire was under investigation.
