On June 25 at 10:15 p.m., the Northshore Fire Department responded to the report of a fire above the garage of a single-family residence in the 15000 block of 86th Avenue NE.
Upon arrival, firefighters discovered the homeowner had attempted to extinguish the fire using a garden hose.
The fire extended into the attic space above the garage requiring firefighters to gain access by cutting a hole in the roof and the side of the house to extinguish the fire.
Damage to the home is moderate.
The King County Fire Investigator determined the cause of the fire to be accidental, due to a recently installed low voltage exterior lighting system.
There were no civilian or firefighter injuries.
