An early morning fire completely destroyed a double-wide mobile home on Sept. 2, according to South Kitsap Fire and Rescue.

Battalion Chief Jeff Faucett reported that fire crews were called to the 12000 block of Westbrook Dr SW about 4:27 a.m. He said when firefighters arrived they found the home fully engulfed with flames.

Faucett said a frantic caller called 911 to report the fire, but the line was disconnected.

Two people inside the home were asleep and when they woke up they discovered the fire in the living room area. Both occupants safely exited the structure.

The fire was investigated by the Kitsap County Fire Marshal’s office, but no official cause has been determined as of press time.

There were no injuries during the fire, reported Faucett.

Faucett said 20 personnel responded to the fire, including three engines, two ambulances, an air truck and four water trucks — one from the Key Peninsula Fire Department.
