Clallam County Fire Department fought an Agnew house fire for more than two hours Friday night.


A homeowner at 84 Hunters Gate Lane, near Finn Hall Road, came home and discovered heavy smoke and soon thereafter flames going through the roof.


Clallam County Fire Department dispatched at 6:50 p.m. following a 9-1-1 call.


Patrick Young, public information officer, told the Gazette the fire began in the center portion of the single-story home before spreading.


The closest water source was at least two miles away, so water was shuttled in, Young said.

No injuries were reported. Cause of the fire is under investigation.


Young said crews will remain on hand through Friday night and most of Saturday to contain the home.


Fire crews also responded to an external wall fire in Gardiner and a few medical calls Friday evening.
