According to a Facebook post by the Snoqualmie Police Department, at around 6 PM Tuesday evening, they were assisting in an electrical house fire in the vicinity of North Bend Way and Thrasher.

A power line came down on a home on Thrasher near the ranger station, causing an electrical fire. Traffic was blocked, and 5086 homes were briefly without power.
