Heavy smoke filled the air above Dillingham's Snag Point last Friday afternoon. Firefighters pointed water hoses at the charred remains of a house. Small bursts of flame flickered inside. At one point, remnants of the blaze flared up in the bed of an old pickup next to the house. According to a GoFundMe page organized by a Dillingham police officer, the resident is a police dispatcher and was inside with her dog when the fire started. Both she and the dog were able to get out safely. "We arrived on the scene and we had a family dwelling with smoke showing out of the eaves and smoke showing from the windows," said Dillingham Fire Department Coordinator Scott Runzo. "Got confirmation that people were out of the house and the animals, and we dispatched it out a couple times and got a full crew here."
