Crews Battle House Fire on Cornelius Pass Road in Multnomah County

Cornelius Pass House Fire 1-14-19

At 2:30 p.m. today, multiple callers to 911 reported a house on fire in the 14000 block of Northwest Cornelius Pass Road, north of Skyline Boulevard in Multnomah County. Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Hillsboro Fire & Rescue arrived approximately 10 minutes after being dispatched to find a single-family residence completely engulfed in flames. 

Crews immediately began an aggressive fire attack. Due to a lack of fire hydrants in the area, multiple water tenders were dispatched to the scene to shuttle water to the engines fighting the fire. It took firefighters just under an hour to gain control of the fire. 

With firefighters having to battle the fire from the narrow two-lane roadway, due to a driveway bridge not weighted for their engine, along with the shuttling of water and additional units responding to assist in firefighting efforts, Cornelius Pass Road was closed for several hours, between Highway 30 and Skyline Boulevard. 

The house was not occupied at the time the fire broke out. A TVF&R fire investigator is on scene and will soon begin the exhaustive process of narrowing down the origin and seeking a possible cause, which is unknown at this time. The fire caused significant damage to the home; a cost estimate is not currently available. 

TVF&R was assisted by Hillsboro Fire & Rescue, Portland Fire & Rescue, Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office, and Oregon Department of Transportation.
