The Snoqualmie Fire Department responded to a two-alarm fire late Thursday, June 6.

The fire broke out sometime around 11:30 p.m. and destroyed a house on Fairway Place.

More than 40 firefighters responded to the fire — an unoccupied home under construction from damage sustained in an accidental fire last August. Neighboring houses on both sides of the Fairway Place house sustained damage.

Two firefighters had minor injuries. One of them was taken to the hospital and released.

Assistance in battling the blaze came from the Bellevue Fire Department, Eastside Fire and Rescue, the Fall City Fire Department and the Woodinville Fire Department.

Snoqualmie Fire Chief Mark Correira said the incident has been handed off to the King County Sheriff’s Office Fire Investigation Unit and is still under investigation.
