PF&R Responds to an Apartment Fire (7600 Block of N Interstate Ave.) (Photo) - 04/15/19

Last night just before 10:20 pm, Portland Firefighters were called to an apartment on the 7600 block of N Interstate Ave. On arrival firefighters found a bedroom in a ground floor apartment burning. Firefighters searched and found that the occupants had escaped safely and no injuries were associated with this fire. 

The fire was contained to the bedroom and extinguished. No other apartment units were affected; however, the two adult male residents of the fire unit will be displaced and the Red Cross was asked to provide assistance. This fire started when one of the residents dropped a match while attempting to light a candle.

PF&R asks residents to use extreme caution with open flame.
