Nikiski Fire Department firefighters continue to work an Aleutian Court home in Nikiski Wednesday after a fire consumed it. When crews arrived at about 6 p.m., Nikiski Fire Department information officer Bud Sexton said the fire had fully involved the home. The sole occupant of the home was out of the structure when crews arrived, and the fire was quickly extinguished, he said. The department responded with one engine, two tankers, one rescue vehicle, one ambulance and about 10 personnel, according to on-scene personnel. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Sexton said he was unable to release the name of the occupant at the time of inquiry. The American Red Cross has been contacted to assist the victim. Photo by Kaylee Osowski/Peninsula Clarion
