[ARCHIVED] TVF&R Firefighters Respond to Apartment Fire in Beaverton

At 10:10 pm on September 28, 2015, firefighters responded to reports of a townhouse-style apartment on fire at 6155 SW King Blvd. in Beaverton. Multiple calls to 9-1-1 indicated that at least one of the four units in the building was fully involved in fire.

Upon arrival, firefighters found fire showing from the first and second floors of one of the units. Firefighters initiated an aggressive fire attack from the exterior and then transitioned to an interior attack to knock down the remaining fire activity and prevent the fire from spreading to the other three units in the building.

At the time of the fire, three of the four units were occupied and one apartment was vacant. A search of the units indicated that everyone escaped safely. One patient was evaluated at the scene by paramedics. The Red Cross is responding to assist one adult and two children who were displaced by the fire with alternate living arrangements. All four units are uninhabitable at this time – one due to significant fire damage and the other three due to smoke damage.

A fire investigator is currently on scene working to determine the cause of the fire and a damage estimate. The fire unit did not have working smoke alarms. Working smoke alarms nearly double your chance of surviving a fire. TVF&R recommends that you have smoke alarms on every level of your home and in each sleeping area, as well as a family fire escape plan.
