Squatters might have caused a fire that ripped through a boarded-up Tacoma home early Monday, according to the Fire Department.
The blaze near East 36th Street and East Roosevelt Avenue was reported about 2:40 a.m. No one appeared to be living in the house.
Firefighters responded to a fire at the same house in November, according to KIRO-TV. It was boarded up at that time as well.
The house was destroyed in Monday’s blaze.
