A TVF&R fire investigator concluded that the fire originated on the home's back deck; however, the cause of the fire remains under investigation. Damage is estimated at $150,000.


Shortly after 12:30 pm, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to multiple 9-1-1 reports of heavy black smoke and high flames coming from the roof of a two-story home at 949 Willamette Falls Drive in West Linn adjacent to the Tualatin River.

Upon arrival, fire crews from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Clackamas Fire District #1 initiated an aggressive offensive fire attack. Recognizing that there was active fire in the attic, truck crews laddered to the roof and cut ventilation holes, while engine crews performed an interior attack with 2 ½” hose lines.

They were able to achieve knock down of the fire on the interior and exterior of the home within approximately 15 minutes. Firefighters were urged to use caution while engaged in firefighting and salvage operations near the home’s back deck adjacent to the kitchen which had burned through and weakened.

Neighbors reported that nobody was home at the time of the fire; a primary and secondary search of the 3,500-square-foot structure by fire crews confirmed this.

A TVF&R fire investigator remains on scene working to determine the cause of the fire and a damage estimate.
