Glendale house fire leaves 6 displaced

Six people have lost their home after a fire broke out in a Glendale neighborhood overnight.

First responders were called to an area near 75th Avenue and Union Hills Drive early Sunday morning after a neighbor reported seeing the fire next door.

By the time first responders arrived, the house was engulfed in flames. 

"After obtaining a primary search and not finding any victims, conditions deteriorated, and all crews exited the structure and defensive operations were commenced," officials said.

No one was injured, but six people were displaced.

The cause is under investigation.

Residents of this quiet Glendale neighborhood are left shaken after the fire ripped through the garage and then quickly spread into a home.

"Everything on this north end of his property for the house it’s just gone," says neighbor Curt Getting. "Everything gets pretty dry and it goes up fast."

Nextdoor, Getting says he was awake at the time the fire broke out.

"It was just before 3 o’clock this morning. I was actually up watching TV and noticed the electric flash on and off inside the house which was kind of strange and a few minutes later, all of a sudden flashing red and blue lights going through," he said.

Getting says he couldn’t believe his eyes when he looked outside and saw massive flames just feet away.

"Happened to glance out my back windows and saw the north end of the neighbor's house up in flames," Getting said.

Embers were flying in the wind and down into his own yard.

"My biggest concern was that it was pretty close to a pine tree that I have on the south side of my lot there and I’ve seen pine trees go up. They light up real fast and of course, with all the wood framing and everything they do with houses around here, it’s all with pine. Fortunately, my tree didn’t catch fire," he said.
