Significant House Fire: 8200 Block of Avalon Drive

.
8200 Block Avalon Drive
Aug 3, 2017 - At 1:20pm on Thursday, August 3, the Mercer Island Fire Department responded to a residential structure fire in the 8200 block of Avalon Drive. Arriving on scene within minutes, Mercer Island Firefighters initiated an aggressive exterior fire attack to knock down the flames and then went inside to search for possible victims and extinguish the rest of the fire.

Firefighters extinguished the fire with several large hoselines and an elevated master stream.  The building sustained significant damage caused by fire, heat, water and smoke. The fire was extinguished at approximately 5:00pm, but was monitored through the night.

No one was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were sustained. The fire possibly originated on the exterior of the structure and moved into the attic, however the fire is still under investigation.  

A total of fifteen fire apparatus with 42 Firefighters were used to control this incident. It was a joint effort between Mercer Island Fire, Bellevue Fire, Kirkland Fire and Redmond Fire.
