Fire destroys Oak Harbor home over Memorial Day weekend

Despite the total loss, there were no injuries reported.

A young family lost almost all of their belongings after a fire destroyed their home on North Oak Harbor Road around midnight on Sunday, May 30.

Crisna Shannon said she had just gotten off work and was on her way to pick up her two young sons, ages 4 and 1-and-a-half, from her mother’s house when she got a call about the fire.

Her husband was at home at the time, and neighbors began pounding on the door to the trailer to alert him to the blaze.

Crews from North Whidbey Fire and Rescue, Oak Harbor Fire Department and the Navy responded to the fire.

The trailer was a total loss and two vehicles were damaged by the blaze, but no one was injured. North Whidbey Fire Chief John Clark said the cause is undetermined.

The family is now staying in a hotel while they try to find a place to live. A fundraiser has raised $7,790 of its $40,000 goal so far.

The fundraiser can be found at gofund.me/dff5a92d.
