After an explosion was reported, an ambulance supervisor went to investigate and saw one vehicle fully engulfed – it spread to a second shortly thereafter. The Clallam County Fire District said in a Facebook post that the fire spread to the building that housed the vehicles and was upgraded to a commercial structure fire.

Damages are estimated at more than $500,000.
