Evergreen firefighters extinguished a blaze that started in an exterior wall of a cabin off Upper Bear Creek Road early Wednesday morning.
After receiving the call at 5:40 a.m., fire crews brought several engines and tenders containing water to the residence on Linn Court, said Evergreen Fire/Rescue spokesperson Stacee Montague.
By 6 a.m., firefighters were dousing the blaze with water while working in below-freezing temperatures, Montague reported. Although there was smoke damage, the structure was saved.
A child woke up her family living on the second level of the dwelling, Montague said. All of the residents escaped the 1,200-square-foot cabin uninjured.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. However, signs are pointing to an electrical malfunction, Montague said.
Montague also said she did not believe there were smoke detectors in the home, which is an older structure in a remote area.
