ILLAHEE – One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after a fire damaged a home in the Illahee Shores Mobile Home Park Saturday morning.
Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue firefighters were called to a home in the park at about 4:15 a.m. and found smoke and fire coming from the residence.
“The sole occupant reports they woke up and saw fire near the space heater in their bedroom,” agency public information officer Ileana LiMarzi wrote in a social media post. “They evacuated and went to a neighbor’s home to call 911.”
Fire damaged about half of the home, and the residence sustained smoke damage throughout.
The Kitsap County Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the incident.
