[ARCHIVED] Intentionally Set Fire at Canyon Park Apartments near Beaverton Destroys Carport and Vehicles


At 9:34pm on July 27, several callers to 9-1-1 reported the sound of explosions and loud popping from a burning carport at the Canyon Park Apartments in the 4200 block of SW 107th Avenue near Beaverton. Within four minutes, crews from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue arrived and began aggressively fighting the fire. They were able to extinguish the burning carport and keep the fire from spreading to nearby apartments. Fortunately, no firefighters or tenants were injured as a result of the fire.

Five vehicles were destroyed by the fire and the carport is a total loss. Radiant heat from the fire also damaged at least a dozen more vehicles, a nearby mailbox structure and a fence. Based on material evidence, TVF&R investigators believe the fire started in a recycling enclosure and was intentionally set.

Due to potential criminal aspects of the case, TVF&R investigators are working with detectives from Washington County Sheriff’s office. Tenant interviews are currently underway. An estimated value of loss is still unavailable at the time of this release.

Past Fires at the Canyon Park Apartments
In the past two years, there have been seven other fires at the Canyon Park Apartments. Investigators are looking into the possibility that one of those fires, which happened two weeks ago (July 14), may be connected to last night’s fire.

There are no other details available at this time due to the active nature of the investigation.
