Fire Destroys Utility Shed at Seaside Golf Course (Photo) - 07/20/21

Seaside, Ore. July 20, 2021 At approximately 1:11 p.m. on Tuesday, July 20, Seaside Dispatch received a report of a structure fire at 415 Avenue U in Seaside. Seaside Fire & Rescue responded to the property where a utility shed at the Seaside Golf Course was fully engulfed in flames. The blaze quickly escalated to a two-alarm fire with Seaside Fire receiving on-scene mutual aid from Gearhart, Cannon Beach, and Hamlet Fire Departments.

Firefighters arriving on scene were able to quickly put out the fire, avoiding much of the home that sits immediately adjacent to the utility shed. The owner of both properties was in the immediate area, but no injuries were reported to citizens or firefighters. A GMC pickup truck and equipment inside and outside the utility shed suffered extensive damage. 

Avenue U between S. Roosevelt (Hwy 101) and S. Edgewood was closed for approximately two hours. Mutual aid (which helps provide additional coverage especially as small fire departments work a fire) was also provided by Astoria, Warrenton, Knappa Elsie Vinemaple, Nehalem Bay, Lewis and Clark and the Olney-Walluski Fire Departments. Additional support was provided by the Seaside Police Department, Pacific Power and Seaside Public Works.

Additional information will be available once authorities have completed their investigation.
