Fire officials are crediting a neighbor and a teen for keeping a house fire from spreading.
Six people were inside when the blaze started early Thursday but all got out safely, said Pasco Fire Department Capt. Ryan Cellick.
A teenager noticed the smoke and called 911 at 5:30 a.m.
“The fire was mostly extinguished before our arrival by a neighbor with a garden hose,” said Cellick.
Why the front door of a house in the 600 block of North Cedar Avenue in Pasco caught fire is under investigation.
“They are not saying (arson). They are investigating it,” he said.
The damage was limited mostly to the outside of the home, mainly around the front door.
