Washougal WA - October 7, 2014 - The Port of Camas-Washougal today announced that a fire in the C-Row Hangar at Grove Field Airport consumed several hangars and their contents late last night. No injuries were reported. Grove Field is owned by the Port and located north of Camas.
“The Airport has been closed in order to secure the damaged building and due to safety concerns for surrounding property,” said Executive Director David Ripp. “It will remain closed until the Fire Marshall completes his investigation.”

“We want to thank the Camas-Washougal Fire Department, Vancouver Fire Department, East County Fire and Rescue, the Clark County Sheriff Department and Camas Police Department,” added Ripp. “Their quick response contained the fire and prevented more damage to other structures.”
