Kirkland firefighters responded to the second Kirkland garage fire in four days Sunday night.

It took about five minutes to control the fire located at a two-story home in the 13400 block of 110th Place NE, near Edith Moulton Park.

At 11:22 p.m., first responders arrived to the homeowner spraying water on the fire, according to Kirkland Fire Department Battalion Chief Mike Haschak.

Haschak said firefighters made sure the fire was completely out before checking the rest of the garage, searching the entire house for all occupants and pulling the ceiling to make sure the fire hadn’t extended upwards.

Haschak could not provide an estimate on damage cost but said this fire was much smaller in comparison to the fire that occurred last week.

“The other one was a ball of fire,” he said, adding that he was the instant commander on that garage fire.

No occupants, firefighters or pets were injured and the cause is still under investigation.

Firefighters with Bothell and Woodinville also responded.
