The Bellevue Fire Department responded to a structure fire on the 1700 Block of 147th Ave this afternoon, after a real estate agent drove by the residence to check on it and noticed that there was smoke choking the interior.

"Everything has been resolved," said Lt. Troy Donlin, Bellevue Fire's PIO. "Though there's a whole lot of smoke."

The two-story location is unoccupied and investigators are still determining the source of the fire, though it appears to have started just inside the front door. Story will be updated accordingly.
