A Lynnwood family is without a home tonight after losing everything in a weekend fire.
Neighbors describe the scene near Larch Way and 208th Place as “chaotic.” They describe ammunition going off and two Teslas exploding in the driveway.
The noise caused next-door neighbor Mark Nguyen to race outside. “I start freaking out, ran outside. I saw that their house was on fire,” said Nguyen. “That’s when I was like, ‘Yeah, I got to get everybody out the house.’”
Nguyen helped his family and his neighbor run to safety.
Fire crews arrived quickly but were met with two major challenges.
The first was handling the ammunition that was being stored in the home’s garage. The fire scattered the ammo in all directions, leaving casings exposed once the fire was extinguished.
