Garage fire destroys Vancouver home

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

Fire investigators want to know what caused a house fire in Vancouver on Sunday.

Eleven people were inside the home on 139th Avenue near 13th Street when the fire started in the garage.

The fire destroyed a van and spread quickly to the rest of the house.

One person we talked to said he was one of the 11 people, who are all renters.

"Everything's gone," said Chris Perusewicz. "Van, house, bedroom, everything."

There were no reports of any injuries and we're told the pets were also safe.

The Red Cross was helping the displace occupants Sunday night.

As of Monday morning there was no word on a damage estimate or if the people living there had renters insurance.
