Firefighters responded to a house fire on Tiger Mountain just south of Issaquah early Friday afternoon.
Eastside Fire & Rescue dispatched fire trucks and water tankers to the scene after a FedEx driver noticed black smoke coming from the second floor of the structure at Southeast 133rd Way and 249th Avenue Southeast.
Crews arrived at the scene, about four miles from downtown Issaquah, at about 12:40 p.m.
Initial reports indicate the house is unoccupied. Firefighters searched the home.
Firefighters requested the tankers due to the lack of hydrants in the rural neighborhood. Crews also asked for the King County Sheriff’s Office to provide traffic control near the scene.
