Off-Duty Firefighter and Neighbor Rescue One Resident From House Fire

A TVF&R Investigator has determined that the area of origin for the fire was located one of the bedrooms of the home. The investigation remains open and ongoing. No damage estimate is available at this time.

Two residents of a home located at 18111 SW Kramien Road in Wilsonville were awoken by a quickly moving fire at approximately 6:05 a.m. today.

One resident was able to escape safely. A second resident was still inside the house.

As neighbors called 911, an off-duty TVF&R firefighter who lived nearby, was alerted to the fire via the PulsePoint app on his smartphone. TVF&R Firefighter Chris Mills and neighbor Jesse Keller pulled one adult woman to safety to on-scene medical crews.

Crews en route to the scene saw a large column of black smoke prompting escalation of the incident to a second-alarm response. This brought additional resources, including water tenders to shuttle water to the scene for firefighting.

On arrival, crews found a single-story house fully involved in fire. Crews began fighting the fire while additional crews tended to the rescued patient. Firefighters searched the home and confirmed no additional occupants were inside.

One patient sustained life-threatening injuries as a result of the fire and was transported by Life Flight helicopter to a local hospital. One patient was assessed on scene and taken to a local hospital for evaluation as a precaution. A number of animals were found on-scene, including four dogs, one cat, one parakeet, and a number of ducks and geese. Two dogs perished as a result of the fire.
