House fire in Sunset Hill

Update 5:20 p.m. Firefighters quickly extinguished a basement fire this evening in a home on 65th St., just west of 34th Ave.

Fire crews reported smoke coming from the Sunset Hill house when they arrived at 4:50 p.m. A few minutes later, the fire was out.

A large dispatch of fire units lined 65th St. from nearly 32nd Ave. down to the fire scene. We heard one of the fire crews talking about water pressure issues with one of the engines, which may be due to this afternoon’s water main break that has resulted in low water pressure in Sunset Hill.

Dozens of neighbors watched firefighters put out the blaze. Fortunately, there’s no report of any injuries.

Brown water is from dirt mixing with the water….not sewer.

No one was home when it started so no people were hurt, and two dogs got out fine.
