A malfunctioning clothes dryer that sparked a fire at a Tacoma home Thursday morning caused $17,000 in damages, according to the Fire Department.

Firefighters responded about 9:15 a.m. Thursday to a house in the 2100 block of East George Street and found black smoke and flames billowing from the back of the structure.

They were able to quickly extinguish the blaze and ventilate the house. No one was injured.
