[ARCHIVED] Deck fire contained to back of Beaverton home

130th Ave Deck fire

At 5:15pm, homeowners at 10350 SW 130th Avenue in Beaverton called to report their back deck on fire. Crews were immediately dispatched and en route as additional calls to 9-1-1 came in from nearby neighbors. It was reported that home owner attempted to suppress the fire with a garden hose. That person sustained first degree burns to his neck. It was also reported that the home owner re-entered the home for an unknown reason but escaped safely shortly thereafter.

The first arriving fire engines from Brockman Station 66 and Walnut Station 50 initiated a quick attack of the fire and a search of the home. Crews had the fire knocked down within five minutes and confirmed that all occupants evacuated the home safely. No injuries were reported. The aggressive attack on the fire kept it contained to the back of the home. Approximately 25-firefighters responded to the incident.

A TVF&R investigator determined that the cause of the fire was improper disposal of smoking materials into a plastic trash bag. Approximate damage estimates resulting from the fire is $30,000 dollars.

TVF&R would like to remind everyone that once occupants have safely exited a burning structure, no one should re-enter the structure for any reason. Create an escape plan, know two ways out of every room, and call 9-1-1 from outside the burning structure. To learn more about escape planning, please visit our website at:
