On Monday, February 10, at 7:00 p.m., OIFR (Orcas Island Fire & Rescue) personnel responde to a call of a structure fire at the Deer Harbor Marina

Arriving responders found the marina building closest to the main road heavily involved in fire.

Two 120 gallon propane tanks stored near the building were emitting large “torch like” flames which challenged firefighting efforts. 40 responders from OIFR and San Juan Island with 13 units including the fire boat “Confidence” from San Juan Island Fire District 3 worked until 1:30 a.m. to control the blaze.

Damage was limited and a good portion of the building was saved. The cause of the fire is under investigation. There were no injuries to civilians or responders.

Thanks to Orcas and San Juan Island volunteer responders and Auxiliary for their great work. Orcas Island Fire and Rescue reminds readers to make sure they have working smoke detectors in your home. If you need one installed, give OIFR a call.
