Two Yakima families escape a duplex fire this weekend.

Firefighters were called out to the 500 block of E Walnut Street around 2AM Saturday morning to find the rear portion of the building in flames.

There were no smoke detectors in the residence and firefighters had to remove a young mother and her three children from one unit, and a family of four from the other.  Firefighters say the blaze was suspicious.

No injuries were reported and the families were not displaced
