A fire burned down an abandoned house and spread to a nearby home and other properties causing people to leave the area, according to Zillah Fire District 5. On Thursday, at about 6:30 a.m. fire units arrived at the 500 block of A St. in White Swan. Fire crews say the fire burned a small abandoned house to the ground leaving just the chimney and remnants behind. Action News was also told that the fire spread to a house nearby displacing eight people, including four children. Fire crews say the roof collapsed on the second house, and 10 mph winds spread the fire to five vehicles, towboats, and three tall trees. No one was injured. Firefighters say neighbors believe the homeless nearby started the fire. The fire department has yet to determine what caused the fire.
