Home was vacant and no injuries were reported
Crews from the Vancouver Fire Department were able to quickly contain a fire in a vacant house this morning.
At 04:02 Saturday (July 30) morning, Vancouver Fire was dispatched to a house fire at 6115 NE 72nd Ave. in Vancouver. The first crews arrived just four minutes later to find a vacant house that was already fully involved.
Crews chose a defensive strategy to keep the flames contained to the house and stop the spread of fire to adjacent structures and vegetation.
Vancouver Fire had 18 personnel on scene and the fire was extinguished quickly.
A Vancouver fire marshal was on scene to investigate. No one was displaced. No injuries were reported.
