A residential fire in Nikiski claimed a home on Eagle Avenue this morning, a little after 7:30am. Bud Sexton with the Nikiski Fire Department…
Sexton: “Unfortunately, the home was a total loss. All stories were fully involved, and before the fire could be put out it was a total loss. The positive thing any time when you have a total loss is that there were no injuries, either by the home owners or fire department personnel on scene.”
More than 20 responders came from Nikiski and Kenai Fire Departments, but Sexton said the building was 80 per cent involved before they arrived.
Sexton: “The cause of the fire remains under investigation right now. With how extensive the fire was, the cause may or may not be known for some time.”
