House fire on N. 71st Street

A large contingent of firefighters quickly doused a fire in the basement of a house at 550 N. 71st St. in Seattle’s Phinney Ridge neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

The fire was called in shortly before 5 p.m. The home’s occupants were not home at the time, but they did come running around the corner at about 5:35 p.m., and were relieved when firefighters told them their dog was safe at a neighbor’s house. They told firefighters they also had a cat, but they didn’t know if it was inside at the time of the fire.
