A fire that did a half-million dollars in damage to a Redmond house is being blamed on something that was cooking when nobody was home, according to Redmond Fire and Rescue.
The fire happened Friday at about 9:00 a.m. at a manufactured home in the 6200 block of SW Harvest Avenue.
Redmond Fire said the first crews to arrive saw heavy fire through the roof. The fire was fought from outside. Water tenders had to be brought in due to a lack of fire hydrants.
Nobody was home at the time of the fire and no pets were inside. The estimated loss to the building is approximately $500,000, Redmond Fire said.
Investigators said the cause of the fire was cooking that was left unattended.
