The fire started at about 3:30 p.m. in the front yard of a home in the 2600 block of Gum Street in Kennewick. It spread to the front porch and inside.
“It was a manufactured home so it went up very quickly,” said Tracy Baker, a public information officer for Benton County Fire District 1.
The flames traveled to a nearby garage, destroying it as well.
