A residential fire in downtown Ketchikan destroyed one home Saturday morning, and damaged two neighboring houses, but did not lead to any injuries.
The fire started after 9 a.m., and the first home was fully engulfed in flames as firefighters arrived. Both homes are located on one of Ketchikan’s boardwalk stair streets, making access difficult.
About six hours after the initial call, as crews were finishing up, checking for hot spots and covering neighboring property with tarps, City of Ketchikan Fire Chief Frank Share took a few moments to talk with KRBD’s Leila Kheiry about the fire. Click below to hear the interview.
At the time of the interview, addresses for the involved homes were not available.
