Three Residents and Dog Displaced in Beaverton House Fire

167th Avenue House Fire

Just after 4 p.m. today, firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue were dispatched to a house fire off 167th Avenue in Beaverton. The crew staffed on the fire engine from Cooper Mountain Station 69 happened to come across the house fire while headed to a medical call in the area. They immediately had 911 dispatchers add another nearby unit to the medical call while they stopped to respond to the fire. 

Firefighters found active flames coming from the backside of the house, which ended up making their way into the attic of the home. Two occupants and a dog were able to safely evacuate but firefighters had to rescue a third adult from the second story of the house. Thankfully, the third person was uninjured and quickly reunited with their dog. 

The three adult occupants and dog will be displaced due to fire, smoke and water damage. They have elected to stay with friends and family temporarily. 

The cause of the fire is unknown; a fire investigator is currently on scene. 

Earlier today, the Northwest Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning through 10 p.m. this evening, due to warm temperatures, low humidity and high winds. Today's weather conditions have resulted in multiple fires across the region rapidly spreading at higher rates than normal for this time of year. 

TVF&R enacted a burn ban that began on April 14 and will only be lifted if/when conditions improve. For more information about what activities are prohibited during a burn ban and Red Flag Warning, go to our new Burn Information Map

TVF&R was assisted on scene today by Washington County Sheriff’s Office, NW Natural and Portland General Electric.
