Shoreline Firefighters responded to a fully involved fire Saturday night in the 19300 block of 5th Ave NE.

Early reports indicate the fire may have started on the home's exterior and moved quickly up the side of the home and into the attic.

The 9-1-1 call came from a neighbor around 8:40 PM. The couple who lived in the home were able to escape safely.

Fire crews from Northshore and Snohomish County Fire District 1 assisted in the effort.

Saturday night's windy weather caused some fire to move to the exterior of a house next door. Residents of that home escaped without injury, as firefighters quickly contained the exposure threat. 

King County Fire Investigators are looking into what caused the fire, though preliminary reports say it was probably accidental, and appeared to have started outside the home.
