Renton Fire and Emergency Services responded to a house fire-turned pot bust early Tuesday on Talbot Crest Drive South.
Not surprisingly, no one was home.
Reports of the fire first surfaced at 5:22 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 27. Firefighters arrived to find flames coming from the eaves of the two-story, split-level home.
“We did a quick knock down,” said Battalion Chief Bill Flora. “The flames were out within 15 minutes."
Renton Fire has responded to other house fires in the Talbot neighborhood, but a residential fire-turned pot bust in this neighborhood is a first, he said.
After a search of the home, firefighters found plants on the first and second floors of the home, but did not find anyone inside.
As of 6:30 a.m., firefighters continued to clear the house so the Renton Police Department could conduct an investigation.
Investigators report the cause of the fire was likely accidental.
