Garage Fire Causes Extensive Damage

A fire that started in a Newcastle garage Sunday night led to the destruction of two cars and spread to a neighboring home.

Just after 10 p.m. Sunday night, two residents of the home on the 11400 block of Southeast 88th Street in Newcastle attempted to call 911 to report a fire in their attached garage. The home phone failed to work, the residents said. But they were able to call authorities before exiting the home safely. No one was injured in the blaze.

Crews from three nearby departments converged on the home and doused the fire, but not before it caused significant damage. Two cars in the garage were destroyed, and the fire spread into the home. It also caused damage to another nearby residence. According to the Bellevue Fire Department, damage caused by the fire is expected to exceed $250,000. Crews are continuing to search for a cause of the fire.
