The house at 611 Holly Street in Coulee Dam was fully engulfed in flame by the time the fire was reported at 5:45 p.m., said Coulee Dam Volunteer Fire Dept. Chief Robert Jackson.

The house is a total loss.

The cause of the fire is unkown but under investigation.

“It’s suspicious for the fact that there was no electricity in the house,” Jackson said.

He was unsure how many people were living in the house at the time. Reportedly, one man is a resident but several others come and go frequently.
