(Carlsborg) -- Authorities are investigating a fire Monday morning that displaced a man and a woman from their Carlsborg home on Davidson Drive.
Clallam County Fire District 3 says the fire was extinguished in less than 30 minutes and was contained to the second story bedroom areas.
The remainder of the home suffered smoke and water damage rendering the home uninhabitable.
Fire District 3 had 14 firefighters and 7 pieces of firefighting equipment on scene.
Water had to be shuttled to the scene by a tender and then pumped more than 600 feet from Spath Road to the fire engine on Davidson Drive.
Spath Road was closed to traffic for nearly 2-and-a-half hours.
Assisting agencies included Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, Olympic Ambulance, and Clallam County PUD.
Officials say the man, in his early 60’s, was examined and released at the scene for minor hand injuries and potential smoke inhalation.
The woman escaped the home without injury.
Both occupants refused the services of the American Red Cross and are staying with friends locally.
An investigation into the cause of the fire began Monday morning and no cause had been announced by Monday afternoon.
It was not clear if the home was insured or the amount of the fire loss.
