HOQUIAM, Wash. —

Fire has engulfed a house in Hoquiam where a standoff has been under way since Wednesday with a man suspected of shooting a police officer.

Video from KOMO and KIRO TV shows this house fully involved in flames before dawn Thursday as firefighters arrived.

Video also showed police withdrawing a robot that had been used in the standoff.

There's no immediate word on the man who was holed up on the second floor of the home.

Police say he shot an officer who attempted to arrest him Wednesday on an outstanding warrant. The officer was grazed and has been treated and released.
