Forklift Accident Causes Partial Building Collapse


At 2:40 p.m. today, an employee at Kayu International Inc. at 11117 S.W. Greenburg Road in Tigard reported an accident involving a forklift.

Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to the scene and confirmed that a forklift hit a structural support post, which caused a partial collapse of the 15,000-square-foot building. Due to building instability and the number of occupants at the location, the incident commander called a second alarm to bring additional firefighters to assist with evacuations.

A total of 120 people were evacuated from both Kayu International Inc. and the adjacent business, Sky High Sports. The forklift operator was transported via Metro West Ambulance to a local hospital with minor injuries.

Crews remain on scene and are working with an engineer from the City of Tigard to evaluate the structure and prepare the unstable roof for rain.
