Two engines, one each from Hood River and West Side Fire, and about a dozen fire fighters responded to a reported house fire in the 1500 block of Tucker Road Monday afternoon. West Side fire station was only blocks away from the scene and the engines, along with several volunteers in their own vehicles, arrived at the scene moments after being dispatched.
Thankfully, they were not needed for long. The fire wound up being small and contained to the chimney of the house and was quickly extinguished.
The response caused a brief traffic snarl for school buses traveling north on Tucker Road but otherwise proved to be a minimal incident.
After a quick inspection inside the home ensuring that the fire was out, most of the firefighters were able to leave the scene only moments after arriving.

I Can't Keep Quiet singers at "Citizen Town Hall"
‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
