Fire burns a Vancouver home

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Two adults and three teenagers were evacuated from their home after a mattress caught fire in their front bedroom Thursday afternoon.

Firefighters were already at the scene of a nearby car crash when they heard about the fire and were able to arrive quickly.

Crews say the mattress lit up because it was too close to a wall heater that the occupants thought was turned off.

The estimated damage to the home is $110,000 but no one was hurt.
