Early morning fire destroys home near Sekiu

Bystander helps occupant and dog from structure

SEKIU — A Sekiu home was destroyed in a fire early Monday, a Clallam County Fire District 5 official said.

No one was injured in the early morning blaze in the 13800 block of state Highway 112.

A bystander reported the fire at 2:42 a.m. and pulled a single occupant and her dog out of the house, district Secretary Heather Quinones said.

Clallam Bay-based Fire District 5 and the Neah Bay Fire Department contained the fire to the structure, preventing it from spreading to nearby vegetation or neighboring homes, Quinones said.

The cause of the fire was under investigation.

District 5 deployed an ambulance and fire truck with fire and rescue crews and called for mutual aid from Neah Bay.

The state Department of Transportation reported alternating, single-lane traffic was in effect due to the fire until 9:20 a.m.
