[ARCHIVED] Firefighters Battle House Fire in Beaverton

Tuckerwood House Fire

Just before 4 p.m. today, WCCCA 911 dispatchers received multiple calls about a house that was on fire on Tuckerwood Court in Beaverton. Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters were immediately dispatched to the scene. Based on initial descriptions from 911 callers and crews on their way to the scene who could see a black column of smoke in the vicinity of where they were headed, the incident was upgraded to a first alarm. This ensured adequate firefighting resources were sent to the scene to quickly extinguish the fire.

First incoming crews arrived in less than four minutes from initial dispatch and began aggressive fire attack measures to knockdown the flames and prevent any spread to adjacent houses and vegetation. Firefighters also performed a search of the home to confirm all occupants had safely evacuated.

The fire was deemed under control less than 20 minutes later. The fire caused extensive damage to the garage and living area and is considered a total loss. The door to one of the bedrooms was closed and the contents in that room were not damaged by flames.

A caretaker, who helps operate a daytime youth care home at the house, resides at the location. The owners of the care home business have arranged for alternate housing for the caretaker and will provide them all other essential needs. Thankfully, the caretaker and youth who were home at the time escaped safely and were uninjured.

A TVF&R investigator has narrowed down the origin of the fire to be in the garage. The exact cause is unconfirmed but appears to be accidental.  

TVF&R was assisted on scene today by Washington County Consolidated Communications Agency, Beaverton Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Lake Oswego Fire Department, Metro West Ambulance, City of Beaverton Public Works, Portland General Electric and NW Natural.
