Snow slows fire response

WASHINGTON (KWWL) -- The snow made matters worse for a house fire in Washington Friday evening.

Officials received a 9-1-1 call around 6:49 pm Friday for a house fire on 120-th Street in Wellman.  Firefighters responded but needed road crews to clear a path through the snow to get to the scene.  That slowed the response time.

Once on scene, crews learned everyone made it out safely.  The house sustained severe fire damage.  The cause is still under investigation.
