Some museum artifacts being stored at the Ocean Crest Resort restaurant may have been damaged in a Monday morning fire.

Tim Dunn with the Museum of The North Beach in Moclips tells KBKW some items were stored at the restaurant while the museum is being renovated. The museum exhibits some Quinault Indian baskets and items from early settlers on the Washington coast. The extent of the fire damage is not yet known.

The fire was reported around 4:30 a.m. and shut down Highway 109 traffic for several hours while multiple agencies responded.
