No criminal activity suspected in Yacolt-area fire

By , Columbian Breaking News Reporter

No criminal activity is suspected in a fire at a Yacolt-area house Wednesday afternoon that displaced two people.

Firefighters were called to 23217 N.E. Worthington Rd. at about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday after a neighbor spotted flames on the back of the house.

Crews had the fire, which originated on the outside of the house, under control in about an hour.

To conclusively determine the cause of the fire, Clark County Deputy Fire Marshal Susan Anderson said, there will need to be an analysis by an electrical engineer.

Damage to the structure and contents was an estimated $454,000.
