[ARCHIVED] Residential fire engulfs rear of home and deck, resident escapes safely

Timberland Place


A TVF&R Fire Investigator has concluded that the cause of the fire is Undetermined. Damage to the home is estimated at approximately $250,000.


Around 6:20 am, a neighbor described hearing what she thought was thunder and awoke to find her neighbor's roof ablaze and black smoke billowing from the rear of the home. She quickly called 9-1-1 as multiple additional calls came in from other neighbors and passing cars.

The first crews from Beaverton Station 67 arrived to find black smoke coming from the front of the home and flames coming from the roof and rear of the home. With personnel from Brockman Station 66, crews initiated an immediate attack on the fire. Additional crews performed a thorough search of the home and confirmed that the resident had exited safely. One pet remains missing but crews did not find any indication that the pet was inside.

Crews were advised that a ground-level back deck had collapsed due to fire damage but no one was injured as a result of the collapse. Given that nearby homes also had wood shake roofs, crews worked to protect nearby homes from any fire spread and no other homes were impacted. Crews had fire knocked down within ten minutes of their initial arrival. Approximately 24 firefighters fought the fire with assistance from TVF&R volunteers and Beaverton Police.

One adult and one pet were displaced as a result of the fire but no injuries were reported. Given the significant damage to the home, the American Red Cross is assisting the displaced resident.

A TVF&R investigator is still working to determine the cause of the fire.
