Poulsbo residents displaced after residential fire

Cause of fire under investigation

A family in Poulsbo has been displaced from their home following a fire that took place at the residence early Wednesday morning.

According to Poulsbo Fire Department Battalion Chief Justin Zeigler, the fire broke out at the 4500 block of Lincoln Road just after 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. One of the residents was preparing their lunch for the workday ahead when the power went out in the home. The resident went to check the circuit breaker when they saw a camper near the home engulfed in flames, with the flames spreading to the side of the house. The resident awoke his wife and the couple evacuated the home and called 911.

Due to the lack of fire hydrants in the area, multiple crews responded with medical aid and water trucks. Once the fire was extinguished it was pretty clear that the smoke and water damage had made the home structurally unsound. However, crews were able to salvage some of the resident’s personal belongings.

Representatives from the Poulsbo Fire Department CARES program were able to assist the couple with their home insurance agent as well as find them a place to stay and recover.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
