By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

Firefighters extinguished an outbuilding fire Sunday morning in Vancouver’s Hudson’s Bay neighborhood.

Units with the Vancouver Fire Department were dispatched around 6:45 a.m. to the 2000 block of East Sixth Street. Multiple people had called 911 to report the fire and its close proximity to other structures in the neighborhood, according to a department news release.

The first engine arrived in about four minutes, the department said, and reported seeing heavy smoke and fire venting from the building.

Some 911 callers said someone was possibly inside the building, but that person had not yet been accounted for, according to the fire department.

The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause and origin of the fire.

Clark County Fire District 6 sent two engines to help.

The Vancouver Fire Department reminds people to check their smoke detectors to ensure they are working properly.
