Firefighters extinguish minor blazes in Port Angeles area

PORT ANGELES — A smoky landscape fire and a small brush fire were extinguished this weekend with no structural damages.

At about 3:22 p.m. Saturday, Clallam 2 Fire & Rescue units were dispatched to a brush fire at 103 Seaview Drive in 4 Seasons Ranch.

The 50-by-100-foot fire was burning in the grass and logs in an area between the homes and the beach, according to a press release.

Northwest winds pushed the fire to a log bulkhead to the east and neighbors used garden hoses to protect their property while the blaze also crept west into tall grass, the release said.

After stopping the advance of the fire, firefighters worked to mop up hot spots in driftwood logs and the homes’ landscaping. Command was turned over to the state Department of Natural Resources at about 5:30 p.m. to act as fire watch.

Clallam 2 Fire & Rescue units left at about 6 p.m.

At about 5 p.m. Saturday, a landscape fire at an apartment building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Lauridsen Boulevard produced a lot of smoke that prompted the call-out of numerous units.

However, the fire was quickly extinguished, according to Capt. Terry Reid of the Port Angeles Fire Department.

No one was evacuated and no damage was done to any structure.
