Three-story home was fully involved and flames were shooting out the front of the home when firefighters arrived
Three residents and a dog were evacuated from a home in Salmon Creek early Wednesday morning.
At 2:40 a.m. Wednesday (Dec. 16), crews with Clark County Fire District 6 and the Vancouver Fire Department were called to a house fire near the intersection of 142nd Street and 29th Avenue.
When firefighters arrived they found the three-level home was fully involved. Flames were shooting out the front of the home, and three residents and one dog had already evacuated.
A total of five engine companies, one truck, two squads, and two battalion chiefs fought the blaze for 20 minutes before bringing it under control. It’s unknown at this time what caused the fire, but the Clark County Fire Marshal’s office was on location and investigating. The fire appeared to start in the front of the home, in likely what is the living room.
The Red Cross was called to assist the residents, and fortunately there were no injuries or fatalities to either the residents or firefighters.
