Vancouver crews battle house fire off Northeast 119th Street

A fire caused major damage to a home northeast of Vancouver on Sunday.

Fire crews were dispatched shortly after 5 p.m. to 8902 N.E. 119th St. There, they found smoke billowing from the attic of a single-story manufactured home.

An engine from the nearby Vancouver Fire Department Station 7 was joined by multiple other units. Crews fought the fire for about 45 minutes, with flames occasionally visible.

Multiple water tenders were required during the course of the battle, according to emergency scanner traffic monitored by The Columbian.

The home’s residents were outside when fire crews arrived and nobody was injured. The American Red Cross was called to help those occupants find shelter.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Vancouver Fire Marshal.

With temperatures reaching the mid-90s, Sunday’s heat made for a busy day for fire crews in Clark County. Emergency responders were dispatched to seven reported grass or brush fires, though none damaged any structures.
