[ARCHIVED] Crews Respond to Bull Mtn. House Fire

House Fire

TVF&R firefighters were dispatched to an original report of a grass fire on 14500 block of SW 148th Place in Tigard. On arrival, however, crews found a different situation with the entire deck and upper story of the residence fully involved with fire and extending into the attic. Firefighters quickly deployed hose lines to attack the fire and had it under control in approximately 25 minutes.

The original 911 call came from a neighbor who indicated it was grass fire, but by the time he returned the site of the fire it had grown significantly and involved the home. As firefighters pulled hose lines to the back of the structure, they noticed the majority of the back lawn had been scorched. A TVF&R fire investigator found the fire had started on the exterior of the building and then moved to the interior. The exact fire cause is yet to be determined. No injuries were reported.

A red flag warning is currently in effect for the Portland area through Sunday. The combination of low humidity, strong winds and warm temperatures create an environment for fire to easily ignite and quickly spread. TVF&R urges extreme caution with disposal of all burning and smoking materials.
