A fire caused extensive damage to a two-story house in northeast Hazel Dell on Sunday evening.

At 5:57 p.m., multiple callers to 911 reported a fire at 2211 N.E. 97th St.

Once there, crews from Fire District 6 found a fire and a large amount of smoke coming from the 3,500-square-foot house.

Crews fought the fire for more than 30 minutes, with one area stubbornly burning above the house’s garage.

In the upper floor and attic, firefighters reported thick smoke down to waist level, according to emergency radio traffic monitored by The Columbian.

The four-bedroom house sits at the end of a long driveway south of 99th Street.

An ambulance was called to the scene, but there was no indication anyone was injured.

There was no word on the fire’s cause as of Sunday night.
