When firefighters got to the scene, fire had already consumed much of the deck in the rear of the home
Clark County Fire District 6 firefighters were called to a working fire in the 300 block of NW 96th street — just a few blocks east of Columbia River High School.
Assisted by the Vancouver Fire Department, firefighters could see a large column of black smoke from several blocks away. The fire was tapped out at 8:41 a.m., and since Station 61 is about 10 blocks from the fire scene crews were able to access the fire in a matter of minutes.
When firefighters got to the scene, fire had already consumed much of the deck in the rear of the home. Four engine companies, one truck, one squad, and one battalion chief were called to the blaze, which was called under control in less than 10 minutes.
The Clark County Fire Marshal was also called to the fire, and is currently examining the cause and damage estimate of the fire. There were no injuries to residents or firefighters.
