Portland Fire & Rescue Responds to a Fire in a Vacant Structure in North Portland


August 28, 2011

11:44 AM

Portland Fire & Rescue responded to reports of smoke coming from the window of a vacant home near the corner of N. Minnesota Ave and N. Blandena Street. Upon arrival the incident commander reported that smoke was indeed showing from a second story window on the front side of the structure. The address was only 3 blocks from Station 24, and and a combination of quick response and an aggressive interior attack by Engine 24 firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to the entire structure. A rapid search of the structure revealed that nobody was inside the home.

Portland Fire Investigators are currently onscene working, no fire cause or damage estimates have been determined.

Information:

  • 4 Engines
  • 1 Ladder Truck
  • 2 Chief Officers
  • 22 Total Personnel
  • Dispatched at 10:24 AM
  • Recalled at 10:39 AM
