Following a fire that damaged several classrooms at Beaverton High School, fire investigators have concluded that the fire was caused by the failure of a small refrigerator that was located inside the adjoining classrooms. The fire is classified as accidental.

A damage estimate is not currently available. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Fire Marshall Steve Forster shared “We are sad to see such an important community institution impacted by the devasting nature of fire. I am proud of the quick and thorough work of our firefighters, investigators and appreciate the cooperation we have received from the Beaverton School District.”

The Beaverton School District will be communicating with students, parents and staff when classes will resume. “We are grateful for the rapid response from TVF&R and the many messages of support and offers of help,” said Anne Erwin, Principal, Beaverton High School. “Now the work begins to repair and clean the spaces that were damaged, and to support those who lost classrooms, property, and memories. In the coming days and weeks, we will call on the strength of our community for support. Together we will move through this challenge.”
