PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A fire broke out at a behavioral health facility in southeast Portland early Thursday morning, and now the building has a lot of water damage.

Portland Fire & Rescue said firefighters were called to the fire that ignited in an apartment unit at Cascadia Behavioral Health, located at 7511 Southeast Henry Street.

The small fire was put out by a sprinkler before firefighters arrived to the scene. Firefighters helped evacuate all the occupants of the smoke-filled building and searched for any additional flames. 

PF&R said the fire didn’t do much structural damage, and the bit of damage done was contained to the room where the fire started.

Two or three people were evaluated for non-life-threatening issues related to smoke, and one patient was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation of smoke inhalation.

FOX 12’s Kandra Kent said there was lots of water damage from the sprinkler. PF&R said the water cleanup could take a couple of hours.

The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately known.

The building was deemed safe for residents by PF&R.
