A fire that caused about $12,000 in damages to a Tacoma home Wednesday was caused by a stove fire, the Tacoma Fire Department reported.
Crews responded just before 5 p.m. Wednesday to the 7800 block of South I Street and found a pan on the stove had caught fire, quickly extending to the microwave and upper cabinets.
After dousing the flames, they removed the appliances to ensure the blaze hadn’t crept into the attic space. They also ventilated smoke that spread through both stories of the home.
No injuries were reported.
