Selah firefighters say a blaze destroyed a two-story home Saturday afternoon. Firefighters were called for the fire at 210 Duim Lane at 11:07 a.m., and the first units on the scene found the house fully on fire, said Selah fire Lt. Rob Messer. The fire had destabilized the home’s structure, and a combination of a lack of fire personnel and difficulties getting water to the location kept firefighters from going inside the burning building, Messer said. Instead, firefighters worked to contain the fire to the house, Messer said. Selah crews were joined by firefighters and equipment from the Yakima Training Center, Gleed, East Valley and Yakima, Messer said. Firefighters had to truck in water with tenders because there were no fire hydrants in the area, Messer said.
