News Release
Springville Brush Fire Injures Two - 10/11/18

At 2:52 p.m. today, multiple calls to 911 reported a brush fire in the 12000 block of Northwest Springville Road in unincorporated Multnomah County. 

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters arrived within 10 minutes of being dispatched to find smoke next to a barn and flames spreading quickly. While trying to gain access to the fire, firefighters found two patients requiring treatment and activated Life Flight immediately. Firefighters had to provide medical care and simultaneously fight the fire, which prompted crews to request additional resources, including vehicles that could shuttle water. 

Life Flight transported one critically-injured patient to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. The second patient was treated on scene and denied ambulance transport.

Firefighters battled and quickly contained the fire to a 100-foot-by-50-foot area, preventing it from spreading to nearby structures.

The fire remains under investigation and is unknown.

TVF&R was assisted by Life Flight, Metro West Ambulance, and Multnomah County Sheriff.
