DUNGENESS — A home escaped damage Friday as firefighters kept a three-acre grassfire at bay near the Dungeness Recreation Area.
“It spread through the tall grass to within about 50 feet of the house,” homeowner Steven Hauck said Saturday. “It was clearly something we couldn’t control without the help of firefighters.”
Hauck reported the fire at 3:31 p.m. in the field adjacent to his home at 134 Tyler View Place, near the intersection of Kitchen-Dick and Lotzgesell roads.
Approximately 25 firefighters responded with five engines from Sequim, Carlsborg and R Corner stations.
They arrived at 3:45 p.m. and gained control of the blaze within 30 minutes. Mop-up crews remained on the scene until 6:45 p.m.This full report appears in the big Sunday edition of the Peninsula Daily News, on sale throughout Clallam and Jefferson counties.
