The following is from Maple Valley Fire & Life Safety:

A car fire in a driveway led to the house catching fire as well today, July 31, in the 26100 block of 221 Pl SE in Maple Valley.

Maple Valley firefighters were dispatched at 11:08 a.m. to a car fire that was changed to a house fire after flames spread from the vehicle to a tree and then to the house. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fires quickly, but are currently working on the burning embers in the attic insulation.

The family was able to get out safely and Red Cross was on location to assist them. A King County Fire Investigator is also on scene to determine the cause of the fire.

The home had working smoke alarms.
