Fire spreading to unit just to the north2:52pm – Report of a house fire at SW Bay and SW 7th in Newport – just northwest of the bridge.

2:54pm – Newport Fire Chief Rob Murphy reports an old motel converted to a home is on fire.  Flames showing.  Setting up attack.

3:30pm The fire is spreading between two older homes – the string of buildings used to be an old motel. The buildings are owned by Mary Metcalf, an elderly woman. She has one male renter.  Metcalf and the renter were not on the premises.  They’re okay.

Second home to the north is ablaze….

Just about every fire department in the county is on scene…on the other side …

Fire viewed from east of the burning homes….termed a “defensive” fire because houses are stuffed with personal effects and it’s unsafe for firefighters to enter the homes.
