MILWAUKIE, OR (KPTV) – Firefighters rescued a teenager from a burning house in Milwaukie Thursday night.

Clackamas County firefighters around 8 p.m. rushed to the home in 9700 block of Southeast 38th Avenue.

They say a closed door in the area where the teen was found helped the teen survive until crews arrived. The teen is in critical condition.

Fire officials confirm a second person was also hurt and taken to the hospital.

Investigators haven’t said what sparked the fire.

FOX 12 Thursday night spoke with a witness who says he heard scream. 

"I noticed smoke coming out, so I just ran down here as fast as I could, super fast ... all I heard was screaming for a quick minute," Joshua Sanchez said. 

Officials say a power line fell onto one of the fire trucks at the scene. 

No additional information was immediately available for release.
