Blaze burns Jamestown Road structure

A structure fire on the 100 block of Jamestown Road just before 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 22, totaled a 24-foot-by-36-foot shed and its contents, Fire District 3 officials said.

The family was home at the time of the fire and none were injured, according to the fire district

Firefighters were called to the scene and found the structure fully engulfed, with flames and embers reaching about 100 feet in the air, district representatives said.

Crews attacked the fire from the perimeter but because of the amount of personal contents around the property it made for a difficult stretch hose and fight the fire, Assistant Chief Dan Orr said in a press release.

The structure is a total loss and estimated at $10,000, while the shed’s contents were also a total loss, estimated at $5,000.

District 3 requested mutual aid from Fire District 2 (Port Angeles) to assist with running other calls.

Cause of the fire is still under investigation.
