Firefighters respond to house fire on Copper Creek Drive

South Kitsap Fire and Rescue firefighters responded to a fire on SE Copper Creek Drive.

South Kitsap Fire and Rescue firefighters responded to a residential structure fire on SE Copper Creek Drive on March 2.

The fire appeared to have started on the southern outside wall of a garage attached to a two-story home at about 4:30 p.m.

When crews arrived they found a vehicle on fire that extended to the exterior of a structure and started an aggressive fire attack, according to Mike Kehl, acting battalion chief.

“The blaze caused a natural gas supply to rupture and added to the fire load,” Kehl said. “The fire was quickly brought under control and never extended into the interior of the structure.”

Neighbors watched from a distance as the fire was extinguished.

Fire Chief Steven Wright, who responded to the scene, said there was no damage to the main structure of the home.

Seventeen firefighters, along with three engines, two aid trucks and a medic, responded to the fire.

No individuals was home at the time of the fire and the family dog was found unharmed.

There were no injuries reported and the Kitsap County Fire Marshal office is investigating the cause of the fire.
