HAZEL DELL, Wash. (AP) -- Firefighters say clutter in a Hazel Dell home fed a blaze and made their work more difficult.

Two grandparents and children 8 and 9 years old escaped without injury Monday evening as the fire went to two alarms.

Clark County Fire District 6 says the fire started in a back bedroom on the second story of the split-level home and flames spread into the attic and through the roof.

Cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage is estimated at $325,000.
