Residents safely escaped from their home located on Hanks Grade near Lenore as fire claimed the basement of their home during the early morning hours of June 27. Due to heavy storms, the family’s power had been disrupted the night before.

Firefighters were able to save the remainder of the house from the blaze. Josh Hall, Fire Chief for Nez Perce County shared credit with Sunnyside Rural Fire Department and their rapid mutual aid response.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
