Skyway home destroyed in 2-alarm fire, 1 firefighter injured
NEAR SKYWAY, Wash. - A two-alarm fire destroyed a home near Skyway Friday night.
Firefighters from multiple agencies were called to the home off Beacon Coal Mine Road, near Monster road about 10:30 p.m.
Crews said when they arrived, the home was 70 to 80 percent engulfed in flames.
Video from the King County Sheriff's Office Guardian One helicopter showed a massive ball of fire.
Crews said one of the walls of the homes collapsed, so they moved into a defensive mode. It took more than two-dozen firefighters over an hour to get the fire fully contained.
They said one firefighter has an ankle injury, but is expected to be ok.
The home is a total loss, but firefighters were able to protect a nearby warehouse.
Investigators said they're not sure if anyone was inside the home at the time.
No word yet on what may have caused the fire.
