A single family residence that burned last week, caught fire again on Monday May 5, but the fire was quickly dealt with. No determination of the cause of either fire has yet been made.

Fire re-ingites in home that burned last week

A fire, apparently rekindled by remaining embers, in a home that burned in the 10000 block of 39th S.W. in Arbor Heights was put out within ten minutes by Seattle Firefighters early Monday morning May 5. Firefighter and investigators have not able to enter the structure since it is unstable and thus far no cause has been determined for the blaze that did a combined total damage of $450,000.

Sue Stangl of the Seattle Fire Department said a fire watch would be in place to ensure it would not reignite and a determination of when it would end would be made later.

Investigators have not been able to speak to the couple, who suffered smoke inhalation in the fire. Both in their 70's the husband suffered burns as well.
