Crews found the bodies of the three victims, believed to be a woman and her children who lived there, inside the home during firefighting efforts.

The family was living in a single-wide manufactured home that had been converted into a duplex at a mobile home park in Mattawa, according to Kyle Foreman, communications manager for the county's emergency services department.

Neighbors called 911 at 11:37 p.m., and a crew from Grant County Fire District 8 arrived at 11:54 p.m. to find the structure and two vehicles fully ablaze, Foreman said in a press release.

The Grant County fire marshal is investigating.
