PORT HADLOCK: 3 similar fires unrelated, investigators say

PORT HADLOCK — Jefferson County fire officials have concluded that three manufactured home blazes in the past month are unrelated even though all of the fires occurred with a block of each another.

Port Ludlow Fire Chief Wayne Kier said the Jefferson County Fire Investigation Task Force concluded Wednesday that two of the three blazes were accidental, although specific causes have not been identified.

“There’s no serial arsonist in Port Hadlock,” Kier said. “We have no indicators that anyone is out there lighting fires. We can’t find any evidence of that.”
