Early Morning House Fire

At approximately 1:26 am this morning, CKFR responded to a personal medical alert at a residence in the 6400 block of Tracyton Boulevard NW. The first unit to arrive on scene observed flames coming from the roof of the home and quickly upgraded the call to a structure fire. Additional CKFR units as well as crews from Bremerton Fire responded. Due to the size of the fire and its extension throughout the home, firefighters were forced to extinguish it from the exterior.
Several hose lines were used to confine the fire to the residence and prevent extension to a nearby home.
The occupant was initially thought to be trapped inside, but was thankfully located safely sitting outside.
The County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause.
