Fire crews from four fire agencies fought to put out a house fire east of Buckley on Thursday.

A passerby noticed smoke coming from a two-story home at the cornet of 96th Street East and 263rd Avenue East before noon. The homeowner was able to escape safely, but it took more than 30 firefighters from East Pierce Fire and Rescue and the Orting, Enumclaw and Buckley fire departments to put it out.

Four water tenders were needed to put out the fire. Crews said snowy weather and a lack of water hindered efforts to put out the fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
