A blaze that reportedly started when oil underneath a deck caught fire Monday night in the Yacolt area spread to the house, heavily damaging the home. One person was reported injured and taken to a hospital, according to radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.
Firefighters from Clark County Fire District 13 were called at about 7:40 p.m. to a house in the 27000 block of Northeast Felkel Road. They tackled the flames, which had engulfed one side of the house and spread into the home’s attic, according to radio traffic.
After firefighters entered the home, the situation apparently was deemed unsafe, and they were called back outside to battle the flames, according to radio traffic. Additional water tender trucks were called to assist.
A fire marshal and the American Red Cross also were called to the scene, according to radio traffic. Two adults and several children who lived in the home were displaced, according to radio traffic.
Officials with Fire District 13 could not be reached Monday night for more information.
