Fire Dept: Leaking propane Tank May Have Caused House Fire

Benton County Fire District #4 tells Your Local ABC it believes a leaking propane tank may have led to a fire that destroyed a two-story home, garage and shop in West Richland.

Fire crews were called to the scene today to put out some more flames that sparked up again.

It was believed that the origin of the fire was where the garage and shop meet but now it is believed to be the outside propane fireplace.

The fire started at around 5'O'Clock on North Harrington Rd. on Monday.

No one was home at the time the fire started but when homeowner Annie Goodwin arrived, she said the only thing left standing was the chimney.
