11:57 PM: A deck fire in the 5600 block of 49th SW has apparently spread into the attic. We are en route.
12:17 AM: Our crew is on scene. The fire is at a two-story home; the deck is on the second floor.
A neighbor tells us flames were visible at one point. The five people who were at home all got out of the house, thanks to a neighbor who saw the smoke and banged on the door to alert everyone; a child is being checked out for what’s described as a small burn, and that’s the only injury we’ve heard of.
12:33 AM: The fire’s out; cause is under investigation, and some units are being dismissed from the scene.
ADDED 8:45 AM: Per SFD on Twitter, “improperly discarded smoking materials” caused the fire, with damage estimated around $35,000.
