Due to the quick thinking of the homeowners and the timely response of the fire department, no pets or people were injured
On Saturday (Dec. 2) at about 4:45 p.m., the Vancouver Fire Department was called to a report of a shop fire at 20718 NE 83rd Street. Four fire engines, a ladder truck and two battalion chiefs responded to the scene.
While the crews were en route, reports were given that flames and black smoke were seen from the back of the building and the owners were working on getting their dogs out.
First crews arrived to find a small shop with fire from the back of the building. Crews quickly pulled lines and started extinguishing the fire from the outside. Due to the location of the fire and lack of fire hydrants in the area, water tenders were utilized to provide water for firefighting efforts.
Eventually firefighters were able to make it inside the shop to ensure all pets were out and that the fire was extinguished. Due to the quick thinking of the homeowners and the timely response of the Fire Department, no pets or people were injured.
The fire is currently under investigation with the Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office.
