Fire destroys home south of Elma

Firefighters fought a structure fire for 8 1/2 hours Friday, but the double-wide mobile home on Victory Lane south of Elma was a total loss.

Jeff Gordon of Grays Harbor Fire District 5 said no people were home, but two dogs died in the fire. A neighbor called in the fire around noon on Friday, and the home was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. There was no indication Friday night as to what the cause may have been. Elma Fire, McCleary Fire, and fire districts 1 and 2 also responded.
