Several people were being treated for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out on a motorhome on the MV Coho 10 minutes before the scheduled 4:30 p.m. docking at Port Angeles on Thursday, said Port Angeles Fire Department Deputy Chief Joel McKeen.

The fire was confined to the motorhome, although one or two nearby vehicles sustained minimal damage, he said.

“The Coho crew did a great job of minimizing the spread of the fire prior to fire crews arrival at the dock,” McKeen said.

Passengers were evacuated but the vehicles stayed on the ferry except for one that was removed during the firefight, McKeen said.

Along with the Port Angeles Fire Department, Clallam County Fire Districts 2, 3 and 4 also responded, along with Olympic Ambulance.
