Breaking News: Fort Clatsop destroyed
As Reported by The Daily Astorian
WARRENTON — Fort Clatsop was a gutted shell today
after a mystery blaze destroyed the West Coast
landmark during the night.
North Coast firefighters worked for hours to try to
save the replica fort, but early reports were that
more than half of the structure – if not more – was
completely engulfed by the fire.
The fire is believed to have started about 10:45
p.m. Monday night.
A fire investigation team is expected to be on scene
Tuesday morning to probe the cause of the blaze.
Senior fire officials at the scene in the early
hours of Tuesday told The Daily Astorian they did
not know what caused the fire.
