No one was seriously injured in a blaze that completely destroyed a doublewide mobile home and displaced a family of five on the outskirts of Seabeck.
Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue responded to a 911 call from a homeowner who reported his home on fire and the roof collapsing just before 9:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 22. Located off Peter Hagen Road and Turnstone Lane, the homeowner and his three teenage boys evacuated the home and called 911 from the closest neighbor's home, approximately 3/4-of-a-mile from the fire.
Firefighters arrived on scene to find the 37-year-old doublewide mobile home completely engulfed in flames. Crews battled the fire in a defensive mode, working to contain the fire and keep it from spreading beyond the home. Due to the remote location of the residence, three water tenders supplied the fire engine with adequate water supply. One vehicle and boat adjacent to the home were damaged as a result of the intense heat from the fire.
Medics transported one patient to Harrison Medical Center for a medical evaluation.
Puget Sound Energy responded to secure power to the scene. The American Red Cross, Kitsap Chapter is assisting the family with shelter and clothing. The family does not have insurance.
The Kitsap County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the incident. Residents reported there were no working smoke alarms in the home.
