Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a 2 story house fire at 1800 SE 42nd Ave. at 6:39 am. When crews arrived, they saw smoke coming from the eaves of the home and determined there was a fire in the attic. Crews made sure all occupants had gotten out of the house and began working on putting out the fire. Due to the remodeled roof, it took extra time to open the attic space that was burning and put out the fire.
PF&R's Arson Squad have determined that origin of the fire was in the attic. The cause of the fire is electrical in nature.
No injuries were reported and the occupants were not displaced.
