Portland Firefighters were dispatched at 7:00 pm to reports of flames and smoke coming from the rear of a residence located at 3900 SW Hillsdale Avenue. Firefighters from SW Portland's Station 15 arrived first onscene at 7:06 pm and determined that fire was coming from the rear of the structure and from under the eaves of this two-story home.
A primary search of the residence determined that there was no one inside at the time of the fire. Firefighters battled flames on the exterior of the home, cut vent holes in the roof to control the fire in the attic, and extinguished flames in the home's kitchen.
Firefighters brought the fire under control at 7:39 pm. A Fire Investigator is currently on scene working to determine the cause. It is estimated that damage to the home is at least $50,000. Updates will be posted when more information becomes available.
