Last night at 11:18 PM Portland Firefighters were called to a duplex on the 4500 block of NE 95th Ave. As they arrived fire crews noted heavy fire burning on one side of the structure and coming very close to a next-door building. The initial focus was on searching for trapped people and stopping the spread of the fire. This was difficult due to the amount of fire and close proximity of the other building. These factors prompted fire commanders to call for a second alarm.

Firefighters confirmed that no one was trapped or injured and the fire was brought under control quickly. The resident of the fire apartment wasn't home and no injuries were reported. As of 9:00 AM today (11/18/2022) this fire investigation is ongoing and the cause hasn't been determined.
