No injuries in Bremerton house fire

Structure still safe for occupation

BREMERTON — No one was injured in a house fire at 12:20 a.m. Nov. 14.

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue and Bremerton Fire crews both responded to the mobile home fire in the 9000 block of Nevada Street, Bremerton, after the homeowner reported smoke in the residence. All the occupants were evacuated and safe.

“Upon arrival, nothing was initially showing,” wrote Ileana LiMarzi, CKFR public information officer, in a press release, “but firefighters discovered smoke and flames on the far side of the double-wide mobile home.”

Firefighters said there was smoke in “part of the residence as well as the attic,” but crews determined the attic was clear, according to the press release. However, there was fire inside one of the walls.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Kitsap County Fire Marshal.

“Most of the damage was to an outdoor carport area with some fire extension into an exterior wall, and light smoke inside the home,” LiMarzi said.

She added that the structure was “safe for the family to stay there,” but they had “somewhere else to stay if needed.”

CKFR would like to remind everyone of the importance of smoke alarms; they should be placed on every level of the home as well as in each sleeping area, and should be tested once a month.
