Yakima Fire Department is Investigating a Suspicious House Fire--Ruled as Arson

The Yakima Fire Department is investigating a suspicious house fire last night, which has now officially been ruled as an arson.

It happened at a home that was converted into a duplex on the 200 Block of South Naches Avenue.

Six adults and four children were home at the time and were sleeping.  They were awoken by someone banging on their window and safely made it out.

Firefighters doused the flames and discovered there were no accidental causes, and they believe the fire started on the exterior of the home.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
