Firefighters entered the structure to fight the fire in the attic and ensure that all residents were out of the home safely
The American Red Cross was called to the scene to assist three occupants who were displaced by an attic fire in Vancouver.
Just after 10 p.m. on Thursday (Aug. 25) night, units from the Vancouver Fire Department responded to 3805 E. 13 Street in Vancouver to the report of a fire in the residence.
The first-arriving engine company reported flames through the roof of the single-story home. As additional fire crews arrived, firefighters entered the structure to fight the fire in the attic and ensure that all residents were out of the home safely.
Within seven minutes of arriving, interior crews reported the fire had been extinguished. A total of 19 firefighters on five engines and one ladder truck responded to the fire. No injuries were reported.
Two crews remained on scene for approximately three hours ensuring all hotspots were extinguished and to salvage occupant’s belongings.
The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s office has information on the cause and dollar loss of the fire.
