Home fire in Bremerton found in kitchen | Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue

At approximately 9:50 p.m. Dec. 31 Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue received a call in reference to a home fire in the 4000 block of Silver Lane NW, Bremerton.

Upon arrival crews observed smoke coming from the eaves of the two story, single family home and flames near the roof line on one side of the house.  Firefighters entered and found fire in the kitchen with extension into the attic.  The fire was quickly extinguished.

The homeowners, a husband, wife and their young son, had been out and when they returned home they saw the smoke before going inside.  The wife and son went to a neighbors house and called 911, the husband entered the residence and found heavy smoke on the second floor.  He could hear the smoke alarms going off so he grabbed the family dog and evacuated the residence.

The fire is not considered suspicious and the county fire marshal was called to the scene to determine the cause.  The investigation is ongoing at this time.

There is heavy fire damage in the kitchen area and attic and heavy smoke damage throughout the second floor.  There were no injuries and the family will be staying with friends.

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue had eight units on scene and were assisted by Bremerton Fire Department as well as Navy Region Northwest.

 

  • Smoke alarms save lives.  Remember to test yours once a month and change the batteries twice a year.  Be sure to also have a home fire escape plan that you practice with everyone in your household.

 

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue wishes everyone a safe 2013.
