Firefighters Contain Fire to Vacant Residence in West Linn (Photo) - 09/23/22

At 4:46 p.m. today, callers reported heavy black smoke coming from a two-story home in the 2000 block of 13th Street in West Linn. 

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue firefighters arrived within minutes and began aggressive fire attack measures. Crews searched the interior and found the structure filled with smoke. The fire had breached the roof, causing it to sag. Additionally, the deck and stairs proved unstable, leading firefighters to move into a defensive fire attack position from outside. All crew members were able to safely evacuate the home.

Fortunately, a completed search found no individuals inside the residence. Firefighters extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading to nearby trees.

West Linn Police assisted with traffic control as well as the initial establishment of a water supply. An off-duty TVF&R lieutenant also assisted initial crews with fire attack operations.

A fire investigator is on scene, and the investigation is ongoing. Thank you to our partners at Clackamas Fire District 1, West Linn Police, and American Medical Response for assistance at the scene.

TVF&R approves the use of all images included with this release for the purpose of news dissemination.
