Firefighters and deputies were on scene overnight monitoring a fire at a house on Wynooche Valley Road near Clear View Drive Monday where a parked motor home also burned. Grays Harbor Fire District 2 Chief Leonard Johnson said the fire started at about 11:50 a.m. Monday and no injuries were reported.
Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office Chief Criminal Deputy Steve Shumate said when officers tried to determine if anyone was home at the house, they discovered smoke inside. The motor home fire was quickly under control, but firefighters were on scene for several hours controlling the house fire.
No injuries were reported, and there’s no preliminary estimate on damage or the cause of either fire. Wynooche Valley Road was blocked for several hours as firefighters worked to get the fire under control. Smoke was visible from Highway 12 and the motor home appeared to be completely destroyed about 12:15 p.m. The Montesano Fire Department also responded to the scene.
Investigators wtih the Sheriff’s Office and Fire District 2 will be looking into the cause and origin of both fires.
