Car Crash Starts Home Fire in Redmond
A Redmond home caught fire Saturday evening after a vehicle swerved off the road and struck the house’s gas line and ignited the fire. According to the Redmond Police Department, a 62-year-old woman was driving a Lexus sedan at approximately 8:15 p.m. when she lost control of the vehicle and hit a house on the corner of Northeast 61st Way in Redmond.
The home was reportedly engulfed in flames by the time the Redmond Fire Department arrived, but they were able to extinguish the fire before anyone was hurt. No one was inside the home, and police say that alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash. The driver of the Lexus was taken to Evergreen Hospital for precautionary reasons.
