Firefighters Battle Stubborn Grease Fire in Hazel Dell - 07/02/24

Firefighters with Clark County Fire District 6 and Vancouver Fire were called to an early morning blaze at Don Pedro’s Mexican restaurant this morning on Highway 99 near 63rd Street.  Employees opening the restaurant reported wires and grease on fire, and they tried to extinguish the blaze using fire extinguishers…to no avail.

After we got there Highway 99 was closed and crews started extinguishing the fire, which stubbornly continued to re-ignite. Within 10 minutes crews had the blaze knocked down and the Clark County Fire Marshal’s office arrived to determine a cause of the blaze.

No one was injured in the fire and no damage estimate is available at this time.

Fire District Scores Clean Audit - 06/26/24

It’s one thing for a governmental agency to say they’re transparent and use tax dollars wisely. It is another thing to prove it. 

Well, recently Clark County Fire District 6 did exactly that by achieving a “clean audit” by the Washington State Auditor General’s Office. 

“It’s important that our taxpayers know we are good stewards of their tax dollars.  We take this responsibility seriously and the audit results reflect that,” says Fire Chief Kristan Maurer. “These sound financial practices have helped us improve services for the communities we serve.”

Auditors take into consideration many factors when investigating the finances of a public agency. They study purchases, payroll, inventories, open meeting compliance and the overall financial health of the District.

In the fall of 2024, the District will be re-rated by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau to evaluate its Protection Class Rating, which could result in lower insurance premiums for homeowners within District 6.  “Our taxpayers make a significant investment in emergency services in Fire District 6,” says Chief Maurer. “It’s our job to do everything we can to get the best rating possible.”
