ORCAS ISLAND – Firefighters are investigating two separate fires that broke out early this morning.

Just after 3 a.m., crews responded to the Olga Artworks building. The fire was mainly on the exterior of the building, with most of the damage confined to the attic.

As crews were getting that fire under control, they received another call at 3:30 a.m. for a house fire about three miles away. When firefighters arrived to the scene, they found the home completely engulfed in flames and firefighters from San Juan and Lopez Islands fire departments also responded.

No firefighters or residents were injured in either of the fires.
