(Port Angeles) -- A fire caused by smouldering leaves resulted in about 10-thousand dollars damage to a Lake Sutherland vacation cabin Tuesday night.
Fire District 2 authorities say Tammy Woolridge was burning leaves Monday at her cabin and moved the ash Tuesday night, believing the fire was completely out.
She went inside the cabin, heard a crackling noise and discovered the fire had rekindled and started burning into the side of the structure.
Officials say the owner was able to keep the blaze at bay with
a garden hose.
The fire did not extend into the cabin located on the north shore of Lake Sutherland.
