Fire Damages Homes in St Helens

Columbia River Fire & Rescue had a busy weekend responding to a house fire in Rainier and another house fire in St. Helens the following day.

Shortly after 4 a.m. on Jan. 28, crews were dispatched to a house fire at 710 B St., in Rainier. On arrival, crews found a fire in the wall and floor on the second story of the home.

All occupants of the home, which is owned by Everett Thorn of Hillsboro, were found safe outside upon arrival. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and check the home for extension using a thermal imaging camera.

The occupants of the home are the Curt Wyatt family.

The cause of the fire appears to be combustible materials placed too close to the chimney.

Damage to the home is estimated at $15,000 to the home and $12,500 to the contents. The total value of the home is $230,000 and the value of the contents is $100,000. The home is insured.
