This video was taken on August 13 at a fire in the 11300 block of 128th Avenue in Kirkland, Washington.
A fire destroyed a home and two vehicles Monday night on North Rose Hill in Kirkland. Firefighters were able to gain control of the blaze but the home and vehicles were completely destroyed.
A male resident in his 60s was taken to Evergreen Hospital with smoke inhalation. No firefighters were hurt and the fire’s cause is under investigation.
“When we got there the entire structure was on fire” said Kirkland Fire Battalion Chief Joe Sanford. “We tried to protect the exposures (surrounding area) first. We were also concerned about the structural stability.”
As a result, Sanford said that firefighters used the ladder truck to get above the home in order to spray water onto the blaze in a safe manner.
