Sirens & Smoke. Residents living near the vicinity of the Illahee community dock woke up to sirens and smoke on Tuesday (9/24/13) morning. The two photos below are all that was evident a few hours later.
Passerby Sees Flames. Evidently a passerby noticed flames coming from the roof of the house and attempted to pound on the door and windows to alert anyone inside, but the house was vacant as the Baggerlys, who are in the process of moving to Rue Villa, had just moved out.
Great Kitsap Sun Photo. Kitsap Sun photographer Larry Steagall captured the scene with a great photo, and within hours the story “Fire Destroys Illahee Home” appeared on the Kitsap Sun website. More details about the fire and the photo are available at the following link: http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/
