Firefighters struggled to contain a fire Friday afternoon at a two-story house with an overgrown yard, according to emergency radio traffic monitored by The Columbian.
The fire was reported at about 3 p.m. at 21407 N.E. 159th St. in Brush Prairie. Crews reported seeing a header of smoke as they approached and arrived to find the house heavily involved in fire.
Firefighting efforts were hampered by excessive vegetation covering the structure, as well as by limited water supplies, according to emergency radio traffic. Crews were working to shuttle water tenders to supply hoses.
