PORTLAND, Ore. – Five people escaped a fire at a Southeast Portland apartment building Tuesday morning.
No one was hurt, according to Portland Fire and Rescue spokesman Rich Chatman. The three-story house was divided into five apartments. The fire was located in units in the attic, Chatman said.
Firefighters responded to the fire at 2066 SE Madison just before 7 a.m.
Tight quarters made it difficult to knock down the fire, Chatman said. Firefighters put it out before it could spread to nearby homes.
All five residents evacuated safely with their pets.
Investigators are looking into what caused the fire.
The Red Cross is helping residents who were displaced.
