Firefighters respond to early morning blaze in East Aberdeen

Aberdeen and Hoquiam Fire Departments responded to a structure fire at 915 Summit Street in East Aberdeen early Tuesday morning. Firefighters and medic units arrived at 2:08 a.m. to find a fully involved RV that had extended into a large detached garage and was threatening other exposures. A second alarm was called in and the fire was extinguished from a defensive stance. It took just over 90 minutes for 20 responders to put the fire out.

Vessey nets still an issue for field’s neighbor

Mike McHatton has a beautiful garden. Trees surround a lush green lawn. Flower beds ring the yard and brim with multiple varieties of plants. Bee balm, monks cap, hostas, lilies, ferns, forget-me-nots. There’s a tiered deck, a swimming pool and a fire pit. Birds chirp and bees buzz.
