Dog Rescued From Fire

Sunday, July 21st, at approximately 4:30 pm, crews from Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue and the Bremerton Fire Department were dispatched to a residential house fire on Armstrong Lane NE, Bremerton. CKFRs Engine 45 arrived first and reported it was an active fire and all occupants were out of the structure. The fire appeared to have started on the back porch exterior and moved into the house and attic. Search teams were able to rescue a dog from the residence and reunite with the owners.
The fire was quickly extinguished and the Kitsap County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause

Two Adults Escape House Fire

CKFR responded to a 2nd Alarm residential structure fire earlier today. Two adults were home when they noticed heavy smoke coming from a bedroom. While one gathered their pets and got outside to call 911, the other attempted to put out the fire with an extinguisher. He was later transported for smoke inhalation. The fire quickly spread through the second floor and the attic. Crews had it extinguished approximately 30 minutes after arriving on scene. The home is uninhabitable. The County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause and the Red Cross was called to assist the family.

Trapped Horse Rescues Itself

CKFR received a call this afternoon for a horse trapped at the Green Mountain Horse Camp. The horse had jumped the fence and was upside down, trapped in the fence. When crews arrived it had worked its way out a bit, but still had its back legs stuck. As crews retrieved their saws and rescue tools the horse took one look at them decided it would rather self-extricate. The horse was slightly injured, but up and walking when CKFR left the scene.

Engine 41 In Service Ceremony

A ceremony was held on July 13th to put our new Engine 41 in service. Deputy Chief Sorenson, A/O Fassett, Commissioner Earle, and Chaplain Erickson each spoke during the event. CKFR is fortunate to serve this wonderful community and we thank all who joined us. It was a ceremony filled with old and new traditions and a chance for us to all come together.
A special thank you to the Professional Fire Fighters of Kitsap County Honor Guard and the Bremerton Fire Department

Garage Fire

CKFR responded to a residential structure fire in the 2900 block of NE Loyola Street, Bremerton. Upon arrival crews observed heavy fire coming from the garage of the two story, single family home. The fire was extinguished quickly and the County Fire Marshal was called. It was learned that neighbors had first noticed the fire coming from the eaves of the garage and alerted the family of five. The neighbors then used a garden hose to put water on the fire while 911 was called. All family members and three animals were out of the home safely before crews arrived. Bremerton Fire and Navy Region Northwest also responded with mutual aid. The fire was contained to the garage and the cause is currently under investigation.
