A 12 year old boy and his 18 year old sister were alone in their south Bellevue home around 7:30 this morning when they saw flames coming from a bedroom. Battalion Chief Joe Gibilisco says the two were able to escape when the fire got out of control.
No one was hurt but two cats died in the fire. The blaze caused 50 to 60-thousand dollars in damage and the home can not be lived in. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
