LANGLEY, Wash. - Two large homes are ablaze on the south end of Whidbey Island, sending towering flames and a huge plume of smoke into the blue morning sky.

Crews responded to the scene, in the 5700 block of Capt. Vancouver Drive, southwest of Langley, at around 5:30 a.m. after receiving reports of a house fire.

One home was fully ablaze when firefighters arrived, and the flames soon spread to a second large home next door. Crews began a desperate battle to prevent the flames from destroying that home as well.

Both homes are near the Useless Bay Golf and Country Club, just north of Sunlight Beach.

The fires were still burning out of control at 6:45 a.m. as crews sprayed water on both homes.

No injuries were immediately reported.

The cause of the fires is unknown at this time.
