This morning at 12:45 AM Portland Firefighters were called to 2327 SE 141st Ave. Firefighters arrived to find a motor home on fire. A man was inside the motor home when the fire started and reported that he awoke to find his blanket on fire. The man stated that the blanket made contact with a heater and began smoldering. He then attempted to smother the fire with bedding but was unsuccessful so he grabbed his dog and exited.
The man was outside of the motor home when firefighters arrived and was uninjured. The fire crew extinguished the fire and cleared the scene after ensuring that the man had another place to stay.
