Two-alarm Apartment Fire Displaces 23 Residents in Cedar Mill

Just after 10:15 a.m. today, several callers to 911 reported fire coming from a second-floor deck at the Commons at Timber Creek Apartments in the 12000 block of Northwest Barnes Road in Cedar Mill.

Within six minutes, firefighters from Station 61 arrived to find heavy flames coming from the second- and third-floor decks of two apartment units. Firefighters began rendering emergency medical care to a man who was forced to jump from his third-story apartment to escape the fire. Metro West Ambulance paramedics quickly transported him to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The female occupant of the original fire unit sustained minor injuries and was treated on scene.

Due to the volume of fire and size of the complex, the incident commander called for a second alarm to bring additional resources to the scene. Firefighters worked for 50 minutes to contain and extinguish the fire and spent another hour mopping up hot spots.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Due to fire, water and extensive smoke damage, 10 units within the 20-unit building are not habitable. Three children and 20 adults have been displaced as a result. Property management at the complex will assist in relocating the displaced residents in available units. American Red Cross will also assist with temporary housing and other essential needs.

Additional assistance was provided by Portland Fire and Rescue, Lake Oswego Fire Department’s fire investigator, Metro West Ambulance, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Washington County Building Services, and Portland General Electric.
