A passerby who discovered a burning mobile home in Maple Valley Sunday called for help and grabbed a garden hose to help, according to the Fire Department.
He spotted heavy smoke coming from a trailer in the 22700 block of Upper Dorre Don Way SE St. about 3:30 p.m. and stopped to see if anybody needed help.
Turns out the mobile home was abandoned so the man called 911, grabbed a hose and sprayed water through a broken window while waiting for firefighters.
Crews from Maple Valley and Renton responded and quickly extinguished the blaze.
A King County fire investigator deemed the fire suspicious. A cause has not been determined.
