Firefighters respond to fully involved house fire near Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Fire crews responded to a fully involved, two-story structure fire near the end of Lake Farm Road on Tuesday.

All of the occupants had evacuated the house at 131 Pristine Lane, Clallam County Fire District No. 3 Chief Ben Andrews said.

The house east of Port Angeles was fully involved in flames when crews arrived Tuesday afternoon, Andrews said. Firefighters initiated a defensive attack, he said.

Black smoke from the fire was visible for several miles in all directions.

The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office established a road block on the 600 block of Lake Farm Road to allow water tenders to safely maneuver along narrow roads. Water was being shuttled from a nearby hydrant to the scene.

There were propane tanks in the back of the residence, Andrews said.

Clallam 2 Fire-Rescue responded with heavy equipment and personnel.

Fire District No. 3 Assistant Chief Tony Hudson, the incident commander, was not immediately available for comment Tuesday evening.

Further information was not available Tuesday evening.
