Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue - 05/13/18 

At 4:49 PM on May 13th, 2018 Crews from TVF&R were dispatched to a Commercial fire at The Commons at Timber Creek Apartments. Minutes later our first crew arrived to a one story apartment complex with fire showing on the exterior of the building and possibly breaching into the attic. This fire was upgraded to a first alarm assignment which brings additional equipment and personnel to the scene which is needed on a complex incident like this.

Two apartment units were heavily damaged by smoke and fire. Due to the extent of this damage it has displaced two families totaling eight individuals. A search of the building for victims was conducted by fire crews, no victims were found. Fire Investigators are on scene working to determine a cause and will better evaluate the total loss in damages. Investigators have determined that both involved units had working smoke detectors. Fire command called the fire under control at 5:24 PM with all companies on scene working.

TVF&R crews were assisted by Portland Fire & Rescue

TVF&R would like to remind you that working smoke detectors save lives.
