Fire at Street home

Firefighters battled a two-alarm blaze on Cottage on late Friday night.

There were no injuries at a two-alarm house fire on North Cottage in Gearhart late last Friday.

Gearhart Fire received a report of smoke coming from the cedar shake roof around the brick chimney at 976 North Cottage at 11:12 p.m.

Flames moved quickly from the roof and along the ridgeline of the structure. While moving to the rear of the structure, fire also traveled along the entire ridgeline.

After confirming all people and pets were out of the home, firefighters conducted a knockdown of the fire from inside the home.

Seaside Fire arrived on scene providing command support and extra manpower to complete the interior knockdown. A second alarm brought assistance from Warrenton and Lewis and Clark fire departments.

Gearhart fire officials said the fire was accidental, caused by pyroloysis, combustible materials exposed to extreme high temperatures around the wood over an extended period of time.
