Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to a two-alarm house fire in Beaverton that spread to a second home.

TVF&R said they received calls about a fire on the exterior of a house that was spreading up to the eaves of the roof.

When firefighters arrived to the home, located in the 12000 block of Southwest Canvasback Way, they upgraded the fire to two-alarm because the fire had spread to a second home.

In both houses, the fire was limited to the roof and attic. 

TVF&R said the arborvitae between the houses caught fire and got into the eaves and attic.

Everyone in both of the houses were able to get out safely.

No word on the cause of the fire.
