Port Orchard house destroyed by fire; no injuries reported

PORT ORCHARD — No injuries were reported in a house fire on Goldenrod Street in Port Orchard July 28.

South Kitsap Fire and Rescue responded to the alarm; the house itself is in ruins.

According to neighbors, the house caught flame when after “an explosion that shook the whole neighborhood,” said Robert Zollna, Kitsap News Group employee, who lives in that neighborhood.

A thick black smoke permeated the sky, visible even from the Bremerton-Seattle ferry, according to a Facebook commenter.

Zollna said every person in that house — a man, woman and their daughter — made it out; according to Zollna, two of three dogs “are for sure safe,” and the third, a spotty border collie, “took off running … out of fear,” but is expected to be safe as well.

Updates to come when more information is released. Photos by Robert Zollna.

Updated at 3:45 p.m.: The third dog was found safe.
