Chimney fire spreads to structure

Clallam County Fire District 3 responded to a structure fire in a Diamond Point home with no injuries to the lone occupant and a minor injury to a firefighter.

What started out as a chimney fire on Friday, April 14, was upgraded to a structure fire when the occupant reported there were flames inside the house. There were 21 firefighters on scene with four engines, three tenders, one medic unit and one command unit. Red Cross was activated to assist the occupant.

The home suffered significant smoke, heat and water damage and is not habitable, said Assistant Fire Chief Tony Hudson.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
