Firefighters raced to a house fire in a Tiger Mountain neighborhood near Issaquah on Thursday night,

Eastside Fire & Rescue responded to the house in the 24600 block of Southeast Mirrormont Boulevard at about 8:30 p.m.

Neighbors reported heavy smoke billowing from the single-story home and flames spreading to the outside deck. Firefighters face another challenge: a long, steep driveway to the structure — a particular hazard in cold, slick conditions.

The fire started in the garage, where a generator had been operating, and later spread to nearby trees.

King County Sheriff’s Office personnel helped to shuttle firefighters’ resources to the scene, EFR spokeswoman Josie Williams posted on Twitter. The residents safely evacuated from the home.

Firefighters continue to battle the blaze. No injuries have yet been reported.

    Unfortunately, the family lost their 4 dogs and cats in the fire, and are devastated.
