A fire on Monday, Dec. 20 engulfed a single-story, vacant home on the 300 block of West Alder Street.
Assistant Fire Chief Tony Hudson with Clallam County Fire District 3 said fire crews responded to a 9-1-1 call at 2:50 p.m. for the fire about a block from the district’s Station 34.
Cause of the fire remains under investigation, he said, but the owner, who lives next door, told him there’s no power to the residence.
Firefighters contained the fire to the structure, and it never threatened another residence and no one was hurt, he said.
Over two-plus hours, 18 firefighters reported to the scene before clearing it, and checked it for hot spots overnight, Hudson said.
One day earlier, firefighters contained a fire just to a chimney on the 100 block of South Solmar Drive.
The chimney fire was reported at 8:57 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 19. No damage was done to the roof or rest of the house, Hudson said.
