Shop was fully engulfed in flames and threatening a nearby home

On Thursday (Sept. 1) at 1:45 p.m. the Vancouver Fire Department along with East County Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a shop fire at 23011 NE 68th Street. 

The first engine arrived in approximately 10 minutes to find a 40-foot by 60-foot shop fully engulfed in flames and threatening the nearby home. The crews quickly pulled hoses to protect the home however, they quickly ran into water supply issues due to limited fire hydrants in the area.  Due to the knowledge of the area that they were responding to, crews called for multiple water tenders to assist with the fire. 

It took three fire engines, a ladder truck, four water tenders and approximately 30 minutes to get the fire under control and to assess the house that received minor damage. However, crews stayed on scene for approximately four hours overhauling the shop that was a total loss. 

Nobody was injured and the fire is under investigation by the Clark County Fire Marshal’s office.
