“Off Duty CKFR Firefighter Rescues Trapped Driver”

As off duty CKFR Apparatus Operator, Terry Fassett, was driving northbound on Ridgetop Boulevard Tuesday afternoon, he observed a single vehicle accident in the median.
Fassett got out of his truck and made contact with a bystander who had witnessed the accident and was on the phone with 911. He then approached the vehicle involved, a late model Jeep, which appeared to have been traveling southbound on Ridgetop before leaving the roadway and striking a tree. The windshield was broken and all front airbags and side curtains had deployed. Fassett made contact with the driver, a male in his 60’s, and began assessing him for injuries. The driver had suffered a fracture to his right arm and had minor facial injuries. He was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
Fassett then noticed a small fire had ignited at the front passenger corner. He left the patient and retrieved an extinguisher from his own vehicle, but wasn’t able to put out the fire. 
The patient was unable to get out of the vehicle on his own so Fassett cut the seatbelt, removed him, and carried him a safe distance away.
While waiting for crews to arrive Fassett made sure onlookers stayed away from the vehicle as it became fully involved in fire. 
After turning the patient over to the responding CKFR crew on Medic 51, and providing his information to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Fassett left the scene. CKFR Engine 51 extinguished the fire.
We are extremely proud of A/O Terry Fassett’s actions, but not at all surprised. Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue is fortunate to have him as a member, serving this community.

Plane Crashes Into Dyes Inlet

CKFR responded to reports of an airplane that had crash landed into Dyes Inlet on August 6th at 5:40 pm. Crews responding near the area (on land) reported seeing an aircraft, upside down, in the water and numerous civilian boats surrounding it. CKFR placed Marine 51 in the water and was able to confirm the pilot was safely on board a civilian vessel and only had minor facial injuries. Marine 7 (Port Orchard Police Boat) also responded and brought the pilot aboard their boat before attaching to the plane to tow it to the Silverdale boat ramp. Once it was near the shore a boom was placed around it to contain any leakage and a excavator was brought in to remove the aircraft.

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.
