Shortly after 3:30 p.m. today, 911 dispatchers received multiple calls in regards to a vehicle fire near an apartment building in the 11000 block of SW Allen Blvd in Beaverton.

First-arriving firefighters quickly saw that the fire had extended to a carport, two additional vehicles, as well as the side of the nearby apartment building, and a second alarm was called, bringing additional fire resources to the scene. Portland Fire & Rescue also responded to the fire.

Fortunately, with the assistance of Beaverton Police, all occupants were evacuated, and no individuals required medical treatment.

Fire crews were able to bring the fire under control and determined that four apartment units had been significantly impacted. At least nine residents are working with the Red Cross this evening for emergency housing needs.
