Two fires burn buildings


A fire early Monday morning destroyed a storage shed that was used as a wash house for several nearby trailers on Stagecoach Lane in Lincoln County.

The shed was about 20 feet by 15 feet and only the sidewalls were standing when the blaze was extinguished.

Grand Coulee Volunteer Fire Chief Richard Paris said 24 people, including ambulance personnel, showed up for the 2:45 a.m. call. Paris said firefighters from Grand Coulee, the Bureau of Reclamation, Coulee Dam and Okanogan County Fire District 2 showed up to assist in fighting the blaze.

“It was out by 6,” Paris said.

The shed was located on property owned by Dave Holmquist.

Another fire destroyed an unoccupied old house on Gold Lake Road at Nespelem Thursday afternoon. It had once been the home of Sabe Redthunder.
