PORT ANGELES — A one-story house was heavily damaged by fire Saturday afternoon.
No one was injured in the blaze at 126 W. 13th Street.
Sixteen-year-old Derek Kish and his 15-year-old friend Marc Meadows were home when the fire broke out.
Kish discovered the smoky fire in the basement of the house and ran to a neighbors to call 9-1-1.
Flames engulfed the south side of the house from the basement to the roof before the first of three pumper trucks arrived at 3:32 p.m., Capt. Terry Reid said.
