Winlock Fire

Posted on 31st October 2016 at 05:45

Rebuilding plans are already being made for the Valley View Health Center in Winlock, after that building was destroyed by fire this past Saturday night. A passerby reported seeing the fire in the 600 block of Cemetery Road in Winlock at about 2 am on Saturday. The fire was reported to be moving rapidly, as fire crews from Winlock, Toledo, Napavine and Vader responded to the scene. Witnesses say that the roof was collapsing as the fire crews were arriving, and then it took about 40 minutes to get the fire knocked down. Mop-up took several more hours. While the reception and waiting room areas were saved, the building itself is considered to be a total loss. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, and the Toledo Police Department is assisting in the investigation. Patients of the clinic are also being directed to the Valley View Health Center location in Toledo. Valley View also has clinics in Onalaska, Raymond, Chehalis and Centralia.
