Print Article

MATTAWA - A Mattawa home has been deemed a total loss after a fire destroyed the home Monday evening and into early Tuesday morning.

The fire started in a shed behind a single-wide manufactured home on Hoose Street and spread to the home around 5 p.m. Monday evening, according to Grant County Fire District No. 8 Fire Chief David Patterson. Crews remained on the scene until 11:30 p.m.

“It appeared to be cold,” said Patterson. “Everything looked good at that point. Otherwise we wouldn’t have left it.”

Around 1 a.m., the fire rekindled. When fire crews arrived on the scene, the home was fully involved. The home was a total lost.

After the fire was extinguished the first time, the residents of the home were able to retrieve some personal belongings and important documents. They have been connected with local Red Cross volunteers for assistance and stayed with family in the area the night of the fire.

No other structures were exposed or lost. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
