Quick 911 Call from former Mayor keeps House Fire Damage to Minimum

Snoqualmie Fire Chief Mark Correira credited a quick call from former Snoqualmie Mayor Fuzzy Fletcher as what stopped a house fire becoming much worse – and kept damage to a minimum.

Fletcher called 911 Tuesday evening, July 26, 2016 when he noticed smoke coming from a home at 7725 Railroad PL SE in downtown Snoqualmie.

Chief Correira said crews arrived and found heavy smoke coming from the eves and back side of the house. Luckily, neighbors reported no one being home at the time and the fire was under control in 15 minutes.

Damaged was limited to the rear of the home, but smoke damage was reported throughout the house. Total damage was estimated at $50,000. No injures were reported, including pets.

15 firefighters from Snoqualmie, Eastside Fire & Rescue, Fall City and Bellevue responded. King County Fire Investigators were also investigating the cause Tuesday evening, which has not be released yet.
