Portland firefighters responded to a fire in the attic of a house in southeast Portland early Tuesday morning.

Air 12 was able to capture firefighters arriving at the two story home on SE 42nd Ave. around 6:45 a.m. Smoke was reportedly pouring out of the top of the house.

Officials said the homeowners were able to get out safely.

Fire crews said they had to open up the attic to be able to pinpoint the fire and put water on it.

Crews said they had to close 42nd Avenue while they worked.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
