PF&R Responds to Early Morning Apartment Fire

Portland Fire & Rescue responded to an apartment fire this morning at 9222 North Lombard Street. Upon arrival, crews reported smoke showing from a 2nd floor unit. Upon entry into the apartment fire crews did a quick knockdown of the front unit and initiated a search of the unit for victims. Firefighters found a 57 year old male subject unconscious in the bedroom. The victim was quickly removed and emergency medical care was initiated until an ambulance arrived to transport the victim to Emmanuel Hospital. It is believed that the victim suffered smoke inhalation and possibly minor burns. Fire investigators are still on scene working on a cause of the fire. They did note that there was a smoke detector in the unit, but was not functioning because the battery was not in place. It is believed that only two occupants of the fire unit are displaced, damage was contained to that unit only.
