Firefighters quickly doused a fire that damaged two sheds and a gazebo in North Salmon Creek on Thursday morning.

A neighbor called 911 just before 11 a.m. Thursday after hearing a loud pop and seeing flames coming from a shed at 12801 N.E. Fourth Ave., said Clark County Fire District 6 spokesman David Schmitke.

The fire had spread to another nearby shed, but crews from District 6 and Vancouver Fire Department responded and put out the blaze within 10 minutes, Schmitke said. A nearby gazebo sustained damage from radiant heat, Clark County Deputy Fire Marshal’s Office Susan Anderson said.

Anderson is still investigating the cause of the fire, but that there is no indication of a criminal element and added there was no electricity to the structure.

The shed involved in the fire was a complete loss, Anderson said, with the total damage to all structures and contents an estimated $7,000.
