A fire that severely damaged a Northeast Tacoma house Monday displaced nine people, according to the Fire Department.
The blaze started just before noon at a two-story home in the 5500 block of 34th St. LP NE. Crews were able to quickly get inside the 1,760-square-foot house and extinguish the fire, which appeared to have started in the kitchen and spread to the attic.
Nobody was injured. The Red Cross is assisting with temporary shelter for the four adults and five children who lived there.
Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire. Damages were estimated at $120,000.
