Eastside Fire & Rescue crews responded to a residential fire near Timberlake Park on Thursday evening, after neighbors reported explosions and thick, black smoke billowing into the air.
The blaze started before 6 p.m. inside a garage in the 18000 block of Southeast 43rd Court, a neighborhood along Lake Sammamish’s southern shore.
Fire destroyed the garage, but did not reach the attached house. The residents escaped the blaze, and residents escaped without major injuries.
The blaze could have started after a generator in the garage caught fire.
