We were called to a house fire just a few blocks from Station 61 this morning. On our way to NW 96th street we could see a large column of thick, black smoke. When we got there fire had already consumed much of the back deck. With an assist from Vancouver Fire, Clark County Fire District 6 firefighters knocked down the blaze in about ten minutes. Fire Marshal will determine cause and damage estimate from the blaze…niether residents or firefighters were injured.
