NEWS RELEASE: Portland Fire & Rescue responds to a vacant residential fire.

Portland Fire crews were dispatched to a 701 SE 111th Ave. at 9:28 pm, where a house was reported to be on fire. The vacant house was completely ablaze when Station 7 (Mill Park) arrived, so firefighters fought the blaze from a defensive position (from the outside). Station 19 (Mt. Tabor), Station 11 (Lents), and Station 30 (Gateway) arrived shortly thereafter to assist with securing a water supply and protecting the neighboring homes and trees.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation and fire crews are still on scene. A damage assessment will be updated when it is made available.

Total Response: 4 Engines, 2 Trucks, 2 Chiefs, 1 Ambulance
