Fire destroys South Kitsap modular home
Fire investigators are looking into the cause of a July 20 fire that destroyed a vacant double-wide modular home in South Kitsap.
After the fire, two members of the Kitsap County Fire Marshall’s Office conducted an investigation, which is pending.
South Kitsap Fire and Rescue crews responded to the blaze located near the intersection of Sidney Road SW and Pine Road at about 2 a.m., according to Battalion Chief Ron Powers.
Powers said when crews arrived on the scene they found a significant fire on the back side of the home that extended into the attic area.
A crew inside the home evacuated the burning structure after part of the roof collapsed, Powers reported.
“Our operations moved to combating and controlling the fire from a safe defensive position,” Powers stated. “During this time, crews attempted to avoid the area of origin due to the questionable circumstances surrounding the start of the fire.”
Powers said there were no injuries and crews remained at the scene for several hours to extinguish hot spots. Estimated value of the home is $90,000.
