[ARCHIVED] Fatal Residential Fire Remains Under Investigation

At 11:52 p.m. on Saturday, multiple people called 911 to report that they heard an explosion. They went outside to find a home in the 19000 block of Teddi Rose Court near Beaverton with heavy flames coming from the garage.

Prior to firefighters' arrival, a Washington County Sherriff's Office deputy went to notify neighbors to evacuate their homes.

Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue's Aloha Station 62 were the first to arrive on scene. They found a garage door in the roadway and heavy flames expelling out of the garage and a second-floor window.

Due to the heavy flames, crews first worked to get the exterior flames under control and then transitioned to fight the fire inside the house. Once inside, crews were met with heavy flames coming from the second floor and methodically worked their way up the stairs to suppress the fire.

As crews gained access to the second floor, they discovered the remains of an adult male victim. The Washington County medical examiner was called to the scene

Fire investigators remained on scene examining material evidence and burn patterns to determine the exact cause of the fire. There is no damage estimate at this time.

Three people who lived in an adjoining home were displaced and are being assisted by the Red Cross.

Approximately 25 firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue worked on the call and were assisted by Hillsboro's Engine 2 and a fire chaplain.
