Portland Fire & Rescue responded to 5835 SW Florida St. around 3:15am with reports of a detached garage on fire. When fire crews arrived, they found the entire front of the garage on fire. The garage was located near the house, so fire crews began fighting the garage fire and cooling the side of the house next to the garage. This cooling helped prevent the fire from extending further and causing more damage to the interior of the home. The firefighters had the fire under control in 25 minutes. Fire crews remained at the home, cooling hot area's and working with fire investigators for another hour and a half.
No injuries were reported.
Damage is estimated at $60,000.00. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
