The occupant of the home was evaluated by a Firemedic and was determined to be uninjured.
PF&R Investigators are currently on-scene working. Fire cause and damage estimates will be released as soon as they become available.
Approximately (1) minute after dispatching the residential fire, additional fire crews were sent to NE MLK and Fremont to reports of a natural gas leak caused by a motorcycle striking a gas line. The home closest to the ruptured line was evacuated as a precaution and nearby structures were monitored to ensure a safe atmosphere.
Fire crews assisted NW Natural by providing charged hoselines as protection as the NW Natural Gas Technicians worked to stop the flow of gas. The leak was stopped at 11:30 PM.
