An overnight fire on 11th Avenue displaced two in Seaside, Seaside Fire and Rescue reported Sunday morning.
“At about 3:30 we got dispatched to a residential structure fire,” Lt. Genesee Dennis said.
The north side of the structure was involved, Dennis said. “Right as we arrived also we had a downed power line. That hindered access.”
Firefighters gained access through neighboring yards and “knocked down the fire pretty quickly,” Dennis said.
Residents were outside the structure, he said, and declined housing assistance.
Gearhart, Hamlet, Cannon Beach, Warrenton, Lewis and Clark fire departments, along with Seaside Police Department, assisted in the response.
The fire is believed to have started in front outside the building, Dennis said. The fire remains under investigation.
