Early Morning House Fire Displaces Nine in Beaverton

FFs working at SW Timberline Dr - 5.29.23

Just before 2 a.m., multiple callers to 911 reported that heavy black smoke and flames were coming from a vehicle and garage at a residence in the 11000 block of SW Timberline Dr in Beaverton. Based on the reports, dispatchers upgraded the incident to a first alarm fire to activate additional resources. 

While fire crews were en route to the incident, residents were alerted by smoke alarms and able to safely evacuate without injury. Beaverton Police also helped to evacuate residents from neighboring homes.

Within minutes firefighters arrived to find pressurized black smoke and flames coming from the garage. They quickly attacked the fire in the garage and went into the home. Crews performed a search of the residence, confirming that all occupants had evacuated. Once they had suppressed the main body of the fire, crews checked for extension and found that the fire had extended to the attic. Firefighters then worked to put out hot spots, ventilate the smoke, and provide salvage efforts to protect the home’s interior contents.

In total, nine residents are displaced, and all were able to make arrangements to stay somewhere else. A fire investigator determined that the fire was accidental and originated near the garage, the exact cause is still under investigation.

Working smoke alarms saved lives today. Firefighters hope this unfortunate fire serves as a reminder to the community to test your smoke alarms and have a fire escape plan. To learn more visit
