Nobody was home at the time of the fire and no pets were injured
VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Fire Department responded to a house fire at 8:48 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 21) morning.
The first-arriving Vancouver fire engine arrived in four and one half minutes to 13125 SE 11th street and found smoke and flames coming from a second story window. Firefighters quickly stretched a hose line to the front of the house to attack the fire from the outside until further back up could arrive.
Vancouver Fire crews then deployed hose lines to the second story of the split level house to attack the fire and check for extension into the attic. The fire was knocked down within 10 minutes. Nobody was home at the time of the fire and no pets were injured.
Vancouver Fire Department sent four fire engines and a ladder truck to the scene along with a battalion chief. Two Camas-Washougal Fire Department fire engines were also dispatched to assist as well as a Camas battalion chief.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Vancouver Fire Marshall Office.
