Seaside Fire and Rescue responded to a second-alarm fire. Sunday, Nov. 24, after nearby residents noticed smoke coming from a structure on Second Avenue in Seaside. The call came in a 9:08 p.m. with reports of significant smoke coming from the back of the structure that backs into an alley way between First and Second Avenues.

Crews arrived on scene and were able to dissipate any noticeable smoke by about 9:50 p.m. Although the structure sits in a cluster of three homes, the fire did not result in the need to evacuate nearby residents or pose a threat to other structures in the area. There were no injuries from the fire, nor did the home appear to have any residents living there.

At this time, it appears the blaze originated from crawl space near the base of the house, but the official cause is undetermined. Seaside was supported in response and provided mutual aid by crews from Astoria, Cannon Beach, Elsie-Vine Maple, Gearhart, Hamlet, Lewis & Clark, Knappa, Nehalem, Olney, Walluski and Warrenton Fire.
