Firefighters Prevent Abandoned Structure Fire from Spreading

At 3:10 p.m. on Monday, multiple callers reported smoke coming from a wooded area in the 16000 block of Nora Road in Beaverton.

While en route, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters saw a column of black smoke and upgraded the fire to bring additional resources. Crews from Station 69 on Cooper Mountain arrived in less than five minutes to find a two-story structure with the entire second floor engulfed in flames.

Firefighters were able to confirm that the home was abandoned and focused on preventing the fire from spreading to nearby vegetation and adjacent homes. Due to the wooded location, firefighters had to pull hose lines down a 30-foot trail and contend with access limitations.

During the course of extinguishment, one firefighter was struck in the abdomen by debris. The firefighter was transported to an area hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Investigators from TVF&R and the Washington County Sherriff's Office are jointly investigating the incident.
