Fire destroys Eagle Creek barn

CONTRIBUTED PHOTO - Firefighters from multiple agencies responded to a fire that destroyed a barn in Eagle Creek early on the morning of Friday, Aug. 26.A barn in Eagle Creek was destroyed in a fire early Friday morning.

Firefighters received report of the fire at 22556 S.E. Dowty Road at 3:36 a.m. Friday, Aug. 26.

Responders from Clackamas Fire District 1, Estacada Rural Fire District, Gresham Fire and Sandy Fire worked to put out the flames. Because the closest fire hydrant was two miles away, crews had to shuttle water to the scene with water tenders.

Initial reports received by firefighters said a person was possibly living in the barn, who was later found on the property and transferred to American Medical Response for evaluation.

The fire was reported as under control at 4:33 a.m. Friday morning, and the cause is under investigation.

No injuries have been reported.
