A house fire in the 8800 block of 116th Avenue Southeast severely damaged two homes June 26. The fire broke out at 10:11 p.m. in a resident’s garage, spreading to his house’s interior and a neighboring house, said Lt. Eric Keenan, Bellevue Fire Department spokesman.

A fire in the 8800 block of 116th Avenue Southeast the night of June 26 left one house in ashes and another badly burned. Investigators were unable to verify what started the blaze, which began in this garage.

Both houses were occupied at the time, but everyone escaped without injury. Keenan said the damage is estimated at a quarter-million dollars.

The blaze continued for 40 minutes before firefighters got the flames under control, and it wasn’t before the man’s garage was almost completely destroyed. The Bellevue Fire Department ruled the cause of the fire as “undetermined,” as damage to the garage was too extensive to indicate how the fire began.

However, Keenan said the homeowner had been doing refinishing work and left oily rags in his garage, which may have led to the fire.
