Fire destroys cabin, spreads to the trees in Rainier

Posted: Updated:

A cabin in the woods in Rainier has been destroyed by a fire.

The fire spread to the surrounding trees and started a small brush fire that was quickly put out. However, falling embers from the cabin fire sparked another fire about a quarter mile from the cabin near Maplecrest and Tide Creek roads.

Firefighters were working to put that one out Wednesday afternoon.

A trailer adjacent to the cabin was also destroyed. Investigators said a family of four was inside either the trailer or the cabin at the time, but they all got out safely and nobody was hurt.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
