At 2:33 a.m. this morning, 911 dispatchers received a call reporting a commercial building on fire at 305 N Springbrook Road in Newberg. First-incoming crews from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue found the single-story structure to be fully engulfed in flames upon their arrival.
Firefighters began aggressive fire attack measure to keep the flames contained to the one structure, preventing any spread to other nearby facilities. Due to the significance of the fire and rapid spread throughout the large commercial building, the incident was upgraded to a second alarm, adding more resources from TVF&R and several neighboring mutual aid fire departments.
It took firefighters approximately two hours to deem the fire under control. Crews continue to extinguish hot spots throughout the structure. The commercial building is a total loss. The cause of what started the fire is unknown. TVF&R fire investigators are currently on scene.
TVF&R was assisted on scene by McMinnville Fire Department, Dundee Fire Department, Newberg-Dundee Police Department, Yamhill County Sheriff’s Office, Newberg Public Works, Portland General Electric, NW Natural, and ODOT. Yamhill Fire Protection District and Dayton Fire District were also part of the second alarm assignments responding to the incident.
