Firefighters respond to fire at SW Portland home

Posted: Updated:
PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Fire investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire at a southwest Portland home Wednesday morning.

Neighbors called 911 around 4 a.m. when they saw the side of a home burning near Southwest Timberline Drive and Garden View Avenue.

By the time fire crews arrived, smoke and flames were coming out of a second floor window.

It took crews from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue and Portland Fire and Rescue about 25 minutes to get the fire under control.

Firefighters said a woman who lives at the home was inside at the time of the fire, but she was able to get out with the help of her neighbors.
