UPDATE as of 9:24 p.m. Crews were sent to the fire at 7:41 p.m. and have knocked it down. Investigators are about to start examining the scene. The occupant was examined for smoke inhalation, but refused treatment, according to fire chief Jerry Thorson. The home, a split level in unincorporated Pierce County near Bonney Lake, is probably a total loss, Thorson said.
“It appears it (the fire) was well involved before anyone called,” he added.
