COLBERT, Wash. -- Fire crews responded to a fire at a home on N. Bernhill Rd. Wednesday morning.
Authorities said a person passing by the home saw smoke and kicked the door down to check if anyone was home. The person then called 911.
Firefighters said smoke was pouring out of the home when they arrived to the house. Crews had to break windows to immediately begin ventilating the house. Firefighters contained a small fire on the main level.
Investigators said the log home was so well built, the flames were not able to grow much. The fire did travel up a wall and into the attic, but most of the damage from the fire was smoke-related, according to officials.
No one was home at the time of the fire. Some ducks were found unharmed in the basement.
