KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - Fire officials say Kennewick fire crews followed department protocol before they left the scene of an apartment fire last month that eventually rekindled.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://is.gd/VZFKWk ) that the investigation into two fires Feb. 12 found firefighters made sure the first blaze was out before leaving.

No residents were injured. One firefighter was treated at a local hospital.

Kennewick Fire Chief Neil Hines says there were no breaches of fire department policy.

The first blaze started shortly before 8:45 p.m. The fire was under control within an hour and the last fire truck left the scene at 11:18 p.m.



Crews were called back around 3 a.m. as a second fire engulfed the building’s roof.

Officials said the second fire started somewhere in the attic.
