FOX ISLAND — An emergency room doctor and his 8-year-old daughter were presumed dead in a fire that burned their waterfront home on Fox Island, authorities said.

The doctor also was a commissioned reserve deputy who worked with the sheriff’s office on SWAT teams and emergencies such as meth lab discoveries, said Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer.

The fire was reported at 11:10 p.m. Wednesday and burned through the night, said Gig Harbor fire department spokesman Eric Waters.
