16th Ave Fire

A Yakima family is safe after a fire sparks up in their home this afternoon.

Firefighters were called out to the 200 block of South 16th Avenue just before 2 p.m. -- the fire appeared to have started at the the back of the home.

The family living in the house say they were able to escape before crews arrived.

Crews contained the fire to the back -- however, the rest of the house suffered smoke damage.
