PORT ANGELES: Airport fire causes $300,000 damage

>

PORT ANGELES — A fire in a Fairchild International Airport building caused an estimated $300,000 in damage early Sunday.

There were no injuries, Port Angeles Fire Marshal Ken Dubuc said.

The fire burned in an old hangar, now used as a Port of Port Angeles maintenance shop, located behind the Federal Express office near the passenger terminal.

The Port of Port Angeles owns and operates the airport.

The smoky blaze was reported at 1:10 a.m. when an automated fire alarm alerted the Port Angeles police dispatch center, Dubuc said.

A general alarm was sounded several minutes later.
