Vancouver firefighters respond to fire that threatened multiple homes

One home had inside damage and another had minor exterior damage

Four residents were displaced by a fire Sunday in Vancouver.

At 1:44 p.m. Sunday (July 18), Vancouver Fire Department crews were called to 4214 NE Thurston Way in Vancouver for a single-story home that was on fire and endangering adjacent homes.  

Firefighters arrived in approximately three minutes to evacuate the structure and extinguish the flames.  One dog was removed safely from the structure by firefighters.  No citizens were inside the burning structure when firefighters arrived.  

Vancouver Fire had five engines, two trucks, two battalion chiefs and one fire marshal at the scene.  A total of 26 personnel from Vancouver Fire responded.  

Only one house had damage inside and four of those residents were displaced.  Another house had minor exterior damage.  However, firefighters were able to stop the flames from spreading inside the second house.
