Our house: Looking for a single-family house in the Seattle area? Good luck. Competition is fierce, but there’s another sneaky reason: Despite an increase in population, the number of single-family homes has declined in some areas of the city. Check out the interactive map to see what’s up in your neighborhood.

CSI – Auburn: An off-duty federal agent saw a man burning some items near Peasley Canyon Road on Wednesday, but the guy left before the agent could stop him. What was he burning? Towels and carpet that were soaked in blood. Police continue to investigate. No body has been found yet.

Got your blue on? The Seahawks play at Century Link tonight for the first time since the NFC championship victory over the 49ers back in January. It’s only a preseason game against the Chargers, but the excitement (and the traffic) will be building before the 7 p.m. start. Get some tips on what to watch for in this game from Bob Condotta.

#Winning: The Mariners are on Seattle’s winning bandwagon, and will play a key series in Detroit against the Tigers, starting at 4:05 tonight. Manager Lloyd McClendon spent eight seasons with the Tigers. “I’m going to be happy to see a lot of people, but I’ll be glad to leave town,” McClendon said. “That’s the way it is.”

Speaking of winners:  Clouds are in the forecast today, but we should see more sun as the weekend progresses, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Temperatures will start to creep back to usual August highs as well. Looks like 76 will be the top for today.
