News Release
Portland Fire responds to early morning fire in North Portland - 07/22/21

At approximately 4:47 am this morning crews responded to a reported house fire at 5826 N Missouri Ave. The neighbor was awake and noticed the fire and was able to call 911 quickly. Enroute crews were notified that occupants had evacuated but during the course of searching the home, firefighters did find one of the two dogs in the home that deceased. Upon arrival crews found the front of the house completely involved with fire. They had to put the fire out on the exterior prior to transitioning to an interior fire attack. Crews faced several challenges including a power line down, natural gas line on fire and porch overhang that could have collapsed.   The fire was under control and recalled at 5:15. Investigators are on scene and a cause has not yet been determined. 

Occupants credit smoke detectors with alarming them to the fire. Initially the residents did not get transported to the hospital but did later, they are both in stable condition. 

PF&R would like to remind residents to check their smoke detectors.
