Three-alarm shed fire shuts down access along S. Wahanna Road (Photo) - 02/07/19

Seaside, Ore. – February 7, 2019 – At approximately 11:38 a.m. on Thursday, February 7, Seaside Fire and Rescue responded to a three-alarm structure fire at 1190 Spruce Drive in Seaside. A single-level, metal pole shed, that sits adjacent to a single-family residence and the Salmonberry Knoll apartment complex, was billowing smoke when crews arrived on scene.

The property resident and shed owner advised firefighters and responders that the shed contained many hazardous materials throughout the building, making containment a slow and arduous process. 

The location of the fire also forced a shutdown to all vehicle traffic along S. Wahanna Road between Cooper Street and the entrance to Providence Seaside Hospital (just south of Whispering Pines Drive) for close to three hours. 

Seaside Fire and Rescue was supported on the fire by crews from Cannon Beach Fire & Rescue, Gearhart Volunteer Fire Department, Warrenton Fire Department, Hamlet Fire District, Lewis & Clark Rural Fire District and Astoria Fire. Additional Clatsop County and Tillamook County resources were also utilized for coverage in the area while responding agencies moved to Seaside. The Seaside Police Department, Medix and Seaside Public Works also provided support. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
