Two residents and a dog were displaced by the Monday morning fire

On Monday (Sept. 25), at about 6:45 a.m., the Vancouver Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire at 7603 NE 54th Street. Neighbors called 9-1-1 stating that their neighbors’ house was on fire and that they could see flames shooting from the roof line. 

The first fire engine arrived to find a single-story house with heavy fire conditions. Crews pulled hose lines to fight the fire from the exterior until they could get enough of the fire extinguished to go inside and search for occupants. 

Once firefighters were able to gain access to the interior of the home, they reported fire conditions in the attic space. It took approximately 30 minutes to gain control of the fire.
