Fire destroys barn in Ridgefield

A fire destroyed an outbuilding in Ridgefield early Saturday morning, according to Clark County Fire & Rescue.

CCFR crews were dispatched at 4:39 a.m. to the 4900 block of Northwest 312th Circle for the report of a structure fire.

The first arriving engine found an outbuilding, which Chief John Nohr described as a barn, engulfed in flames. 

Firefighters doused the flames from the building’s exterior, Nohr said. It took about 45 minutes until the blaze was under control, he said. 

There were not many items inside the barn, but two vehicles parked outside near it were burned, Nohr said. 

A total of three engines, a ladder truck and three water tenders responded to the fire. Another engine from Clark County Fire District 6 also helped with the response.

The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause.
