The latest winter storm has left damage to a home in Rainier

Columbia River Fire & Rescue (CRFR) crews responded to a tree that fell on a house at 6:10 a.m. Saturday morning in the area of Hale Lane and Fernhill Road in Rainier.

Early reports stated the occupant couldn’t open his front door to exit. Upon arrival, CRFR crews found two trees on the house. Another tree came down on the house while Firefighters were inside with the owner investigating the damage.

The home owner and the firefighters were not injured. The CRFR lieutenant on scene reported they were experiencing 40 to 50 mph winds and ice blowing sideways while they were at the damaged home.
