9:20pm
Report of a large garage fire at 1040 N. Bayview Court, just across the Alsea River from Waldport. Arriving fire units say they see flames and smoke. The garage is detached but believed to be very close to the house.

9:35pm
Very tight quarters on the scene. Fire command telling incoming firefighters that they’ll be using their “deck guns” atop their rigs rather than just using hose water. The garage is really going.

9:42pm
Fire command is requesting a Newport Fire crew standby at Seal Rock Fire Station for coverage. Also a Newport Fire Rescue is responding to a medical emergency on North Beaver Creek Road.

9:46pm
Power company is being summoned to the scene to disconnect power to the residence.

9:50pm
Yachats Fire-Rescue also enroute.

9:52pm
Fire command says they’re making good progress at knocking the fire down. They still need two more tenders full of water to get on scene ASAP. Dispatch says they’re trying to find some available.

9:58pm
Request has gone out for a Toledo Fire crew to man an engine and head for Newport to help in coverage for Newport while Newport crews are on the Bayview fire and responding to a medical emergency on North Beaver Creek Road.

10:14pm
Depoe Bay Fire and Toledo Fire are sending tenders to aid in fighting the fire and providing water for mopping up.

Early in the fire, the occupants of the home evacuated as a precaution. No reports of any injuries thus far.

10:40pm
Sounds like they’ve got a good handle on the fire. Getting more water by running one of the tenders they’ve got down to a water supply, filling ’em up, and headed back to the fire. Two other tenders are arriving in the area. They’ll soon join a water shuttle bucket-line type operation to keep putting water on what’s left of the fire. Sounds like it burned pretty hot. Vehicles inside the garage.
