Family displaced after early morning fire in East Wenatchee


A discarded cigarette likely caused a house fire early Friday morning in East Wenatchee.

Douglas County Fire District 2 crews responded about 1 a.m. to the blaze at a home on North Kent Terrace.

Flames were shooting out the front door of the single-story structure when crews arrived, said district spokeswoman Kay McKeller.

The three occupants of the home had already safely escaped without injury.

The occupants of the home were displaced but are receiving help from other family members in the area with temporary shelter, McKeller said.
