Static electricity blamed for fire that destroyed Eatonville hangar

EATONVILLE (AP) — Static electricity is being blamed for a fire that destroyed a hangar and two vintage airplanes in Eatonville.

The News Tribune reports the damage from Friday’s fire was estimated at about $340,000.

Eatonville Fire Chief Bob Hudspeth says a man was draining fuel from one of the two vintage airplanes he stored inside the hangar at Swanson Airport when a spark from static electricity ignited the fuel.

Flames spread from that plane to a second plane and then to two cars also stored in the hangar.

No one was hurt.
