Clackamas Fire District #1 responded to a report of a house fire in Milwaukie Wednesday afternoon.

When crews arrived to the home, located in the 3400 block of SE Guilford Ct., they found the fire located in the garage of the home with fire threatening the neighbors home.

Crews worked quickly to extinguish the fire and to keep it from spreading. 

Clackamas Fire said the fire did extend into the attic, but crews were able to extinguish the fire.

The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.

There was some heat and fire damage done to the neighbors house.

Fire investigators said the cause of the fire was due to fireplace ashes placed in a plastic container in the garage.

Clackamas Fire wants to remind people to always dispose of ashes in a non-combustible container and make sure it is placed outside away from combustibles.
