PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a house fire located in the 5600 block of Northeast Church Street Tuesday evening.

Firefighters were called out to the house fire at 7:43 p.m. When crews arrived, they saw fire coming from the back of the house.

Crews made sure the resident was out of the home and started extinguishing the fire. They were able to keep the fire from spreading to the neighbor's house.

There was some damage to the exterior of the neighbor's house due to the amount of heat.

No one was injured.

PF&R said the origin of the fire was determined to be in the concealed space of the exterior back wall of the house.

Damages are estimated at $100,000.
