Just after 1:00 AM Portland Fire crews responded to a reported house fire on the 4200 block of SE 102nd. When crews arrived they noted heavy smoke coming from the home's attached garage. The firefighters began attacking the fire while searching the house to ensure that no one was trapped inside.
All occupants escaped the house, thanks to working smoke alarms and the fire in the garage was extinguished quickly. While fire damage was contained to a portion of the garage there was extensive smoke damage throughout the home. The Red Cross will be assisting the family with shelter as the smoke and fire damage are repaired.
An investigator worked to determine what caused this fire and the information will be released when it is available.
