Yakima family looks to rebound after massive house fire

YAKIMA, Wash. - A Yakima family of nine is looking to get back on their feet after losing their pets and their belongings in a house fire.

Early Tuesday morning, a house fire broke out on the 1200 block of South 29th Avenue. All nine tenants were able to escape, but left one person injured with burns.  

The family had five dogs who were not able to get out in time. Crews are calling the house fire a total loss. 

Bailey Kirby, who lived in the house for 19 years said the house will forever be irreplaceable.

"It's hard to say good bye to the things that were in the house that I grew up in as a kid," Bailey said. 

Bailey's husband Shane said despite the loss, it's only temporary.

"None of us will ever be able replace anything that was here," Shane said. "We all are looking forward to try to get better and move past this as cleanly as possible."

The family is currently taking donations at the Old Town Gateway Assembly in Union Gap.

Officials are still investigating how the fire started.
