Blaze guts Coulee Dam home
A late night fire last Wednesday destroyed a home at 1131 Tilmus Street in Coulee Dam.
The house was occupied by Gloria Simpson, and firefighters said that there were no injuries.
The blaze was reported at 10:30 p.m., with fire units responding from Coulee Dam, Grand Coulee, the Bureau of Reclamation and Elmer City.
Grand Coulee Fire Chief Richard Paris said that one room in the house was left pretty much intact, but the rest of the residence was lost.
“It appears that 90 percent of the structure is gone,” Paris said.
Investigation of the blaze is being conducted by the Colville Tribal police, who didn’t respond to calls.
