No one was home at the time of Friday morning’s fire and crews were able to extinguish the blaze quickly
Firefighters from the Vancouver Fire Department (VFD) responded to a duplex fire this morning.
On Friday (May 28) at 10:35 a.m., VFD sent four fire engines and a ladder truck to a report of a structure fire at 2310 NE 130th Ave. Reports from neighbors stated that black smoke was showing from the roof vents and that fire alarms were sounding.
The first fire engine arrived to find dark, black smoke showing from the rear of the single-story duplex. Upon further investigation, it was determined that there was a working fire located in the interior of the duplex. Subsequent arriving crews deployed fire hoses to the interior of the duplex to extinguish the fire and search for possible occupants. The fire was quickly controlled and fortunately there was no one home at the time.
Thanks to the working fire alarms and the quick actions of the neighbors, Firefighters were able to control the fire before the fire entered other areas of the duplex.
There were no injuries to report and no need of assistance from the Red Cross. The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s office is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
