Siletz: Apartment Fire on Egbert Ave

A Saturday afternoon apartment blaze in Siletz badly damaged a back apartment in a tri-plex in the 300 block of SE Egbert Street. No one was home at the time. Fortunately a passerby spotted the smoke and flames coming up from the back of the building and called 9-1-1. Siletz Valley Fire, with just three firefighters immediately on scene, managed to knock down fire very quickly. They immediately launched an aggressive overhaul operation to make sure the fire hadn’t spread to the rest of the building. Firefighters said they found some minor fire extension and extinguished it.

Smoke and heavy fire damaged the south downstairs wall of the lower apartment making it uninhabitable. One good thing, however, was that the family dog was saved by the building owner and the fire department coaxing it outside.

Cause of the fire remains under investigation although fire fighters say it appears it originated inside the south wall which could mean an electrical wiring problem.
