Portland Apartment Fire

Department: Portland Fire Rescue - [Portland, Oregon]


Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a fire in an apartment Friday afternoon. At Approx. 2:47 pm neighbors called 911 to report seeing "smoke and flames" from apartments near them. On arrival firefighters found two rooms in one apartment unit involved in fire.

The fire was quickly extinguished and adjacent apartments were unaffected. The occupant of the burning unit wasn't home when the fire was called in and no one was injured as a result of the fire. Red Cross has been called to assist the adult occupant of the apartment with finding shelter.

The other apartment units in the building are still habitable. This positive outcome resulted from quick action by neighbors who called firefighters right away and knocked on doors to ensure that occupants in nearby apartments were out.

The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.
