PF&R Responds to a House Fire (4200 Block of SE 102nd)
Just after 1:00 AM Portland Fire crews responded to a reported house fire on the 4200 block of SE 102nd. When crews arrived they noted heavy smoke coming from the home's attached garage. The firefighters began attacking the fire while searching the house to ensure that no one was trapped inside.
All occupants escaped the house, thanks to working smoke alarms and the fire in the garage was extinguished quickly. While fire damage was contained to a portion of the garage there was extensive smoke damage throughout the home. The Red Cross will be assisting the family with shelter as the smoke and fire damage are repaired.
An investigator worked to determine what caused this fire and the information will be released when it is available.
A house fire is always an awful event, but it truly becomes a tragedy when someone is hurt or killed. Our goal at Portland Fire & Rescue is Zero Fire Deaths, help us to achieve it by:
1. Ensure you have working smoke alarms in your home, on every floor and in every sleeping space.
2. Create and practice a fire escape plan, be sure to include two exits from every space and a safe meeting place outside.
