Fire damages Oak Harbor home

A small fire damaged the front of an Oak Harbor home Sunday night.

At approximately 9:20 p.m., Oak Harbor firefighters, including an engine, command vehicle and ladder truck, responded to a report of a house ablaze on SW First Avenue. When firefighters arrived, part of the house below the front window was burning, said Mike Buxton, battalion chief. The family had gotten out of the home when a passing motorist noticed the flames and knocked on the door. No one was injured.

The exact cause of the fire is under investigation, but it appears it was unintentional, Buxton said.
