BURIEN – A home under construction near 23rd SW and 158th (north Three Tree Point area) burst into flames and burned early Friday morning.

The fire started just before 6am, and investigators are still trying to determine the cause.

A neighbor allegedly heard an explosion just before the fire began, then the entire area knew something was going on when large clouds of smoke billowed up, sirens and horns blared while news helicopters hovered overhead.

At one point, TV images showed flames shooting from a rooftop vent of the home.

Fire damaged both the first and second stories, and 80 percent of the home could be lost, according to firefighters.

The owners of the home were apparently in South Carolina at the time and are returning (they may already be back by now).

No one was injured.
