Home heavily damaged, barn destroyed in Yakima subdivision fire
YAKIMA, Wash. -- A home was heavily damaged and a barn destroyed after a fire ripped through a Yakima neighborhood Saturday afternoon.

Calls for that fire came in around 2:30 p.m. from the Apple Blossom subdivision near South 64th Avenue and Occidental Avenue.

The fire spread from a barn to a home next door. Firefighters say no one was hurt.

The fire also damaged cars and other surrounding homes from heat and flying embers.

Neighbors nearby worried the fire would spread even more.

"Huge flames coming from the barn mostly, cause that barn was gigantic and by the time we noticed that it was really getting to the house and it wasn't more than 10 minutes later and that house was fully inflamed and the fence and all," said neighbor Kenny Starring.

"The flames did a lot of damage. The radiant heat did the most as far as melting signing, breaking glass, melting paint on vehicles and trailers and miscellaneous things like that," said Yakima Fire Captain Brandon Dorenbush.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
