Two adults and four children living at the home are displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross
Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue was dispatched to a structure fire on NE 311th Circle in North Clark County at 2:57 p.m. Thursday (July 14).
Response was delayed as the location was not immediately known and access was limited. The reporting party was a significant distance away with no clear address for the incident.
Firefighters arrived to find a well-involved manufactured home with fire spreading to nearby vehicles. Fortunately, nobody was home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported at the incident.
Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue was assisted on this incident by Clark County Fire District 3, Clark County Fire District 10, North Country EMS, Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office and Clark Public Utilities.
The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office. Two adults and four children living at the home are displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross.
Some firefighters remained on scene for several hours ensuring the fire was completely extinguished and assisting to salvage any contents that could be saved.
Clark-Cowlitz Fire Rescue reminds citizens to make sure they have working smoke alarms and clear access to their home for emergency vehicles.
