NEWS RELEASE 08/20/12: Portland Fire & Rescue Extinguishes A Kitchen Fire In SE Portland


August 20, 2012

4:38 PM

At 3:24 pm Portland Fire & Rescue responded to report of a kitchen on fire at 2205 SE 118th Ave. The crew from Truck 7 (Mill Park) arrived at 3:28 pm and found dark grey smoke coming from the back of the house. Engine 7 stretched a hoseline into the house and aggressively attacked the fire while making sure that no occupants remained inside. Once the search for victims was complete and the main fire was extinguished, fire crews checked inside walls and the attic space to make sure there was no hidden fire.

No injuries were reported during this fire. The fire was brought under control at 3:36 pm and crews remain on scene mopping up. It was determined that this fire was due to cooking on a stove.

Portland Fire & Rescue wants to remind citizens to never leave anything on a stove unattended. In case of fire, the safest option is to always exit your house and call 911 from a safe distance.

Updated information and photos will be given as they become available.
