According to some reports and comments on the West Richland PD Facebook page from neighbors, the home was totaled and demolition work has already begun to clear the wreckage.

Fortunately no one was injured in the early morning blaze Monday.  West Richland Police say Benton County Fire District 4 and Richland Fire crews responded to this house fire around 5:40am. No location was given, but it's believed it began on the deck and spread to the home.

The exact cause of the start of the fire was not given.
