Old Olympic Highway roof fire quickly extinguished

SEQUIM — Firefighters from Clallam County Fire District No. 3 put out a small fire that spread to the roof of a building near the 8000 block of Old Olympic Highway on Sunday evening.

When firefighters arrived to 7909 Old Olympic Highway, homeowners were using a garden hose to fight the fire, said Capt. Bryan Swamberg. The fire was reported at about 6:30 p.m.

He said embers from the fireplace landed on the roof, catching the dry shakes on fire in two spots. He estimated the fire was about two-feet by two-feet in each spot.

He said the fire was out within the first five minutes of firefighters being on scene. Fifteen people in two fire engines, two command vehicles and two water tenders responded to the fire.
