House fire displaces Sumner family of 5

A house fire displaced a family of five Sunday in Sumner.

Crews arrived about 3:30 a.m. to the single-story home in the 7200 block of 166th Avenue East, according to East Pierce Fire & Rescue.

The family escaped and no one was injured, but the home was heavily damaged by the fire, which the agency said engulfed the roof and the bedroom area of the home.

Investigators haven’t determined what started the blaze.

Smoke alarms alerted the family that they needed to evacuate, East Pierce said.
