Vancouver firefighters extinguish apartment fire

By , Columbian staff writer

At 5:08 p.m. Friday night, the Vancouver Fire Department responded to a Vancouver apartment fire that drew 20 firefighters to the scene.

Vancouver Fire Department Engine 6 arrived first at the fire at Green Leaf River Pointe apartments, 3508 N.E. 109th Ave. By that time the fire had reached the attic. Engine 6 took command of the fire to keep it from spreading, according to a VFD news release.

Additional crews arrived and helped extinguish the fire.

Only one apartment unit was displaced and apartment management made another apartment available for them.
