Waterfront homes evacuated due to landslide near Poulsbo

LOFALL, Wash. (AP) — Eight waterfront homes along Hood Canal in Washington were evacuated due to a fire and a landslide that destabilized the hillside and pushed trees into at least one home. Poulsbo firefighters responded to the cluster of homes on Seclusion Cove north of Poulsbo, late Monday afternoon after a fire was reported in a boathouse and RV. Crews found the hillside above the homes was sliding, so they couldn’t reach the burning boathouse with their equipment. A fireboat had to be called in. Crews evacuated eight waterfront homes due to the slide, which destabilized the road leading to the cove. Landslides were also reported in other parts of the state and in Oregon because of ongoing rain storms.
