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.
