Early morning fire at Hillsboro cafe intentionally set (Photo) - 09/12/20

At approximately 12:15 am this morning, a Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputy alerted 911 dispatchers to a fire outside a Hillsboro café located in the 7500-block of SW Tualatin Valley Hwy. The incident was dispatched as a first alarm bringing crews from Hillsboro Fire and Rescue crews as well as Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue. The first arriving crew from Hillsboro Brookwood station located the fire in multiple collection containers in the recycling and refuse area of the café. Crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire and keep it contained to the refuse area and no extension was found to other parts of the structure. Additional crews from Hillsboro's Cherry Lane and Ronler Acres stations also responded.

One person was treated on scene for injuries related to the fire and transported to a local hospital for evaluation. No other injuries were reported.

A Hillsboro Fire Investigator responded to the incident and determined that the fire was intentionally set. The area of origin of the fire was a recycling container in the recycling center on the outside of the café.

Hillsboro Fire & Rescue was assisted by Hillsboro Police, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and Metro West Ambulance.
