Fire hits day care center


On Tuesday at 3:42 p.m., Hillsboro Fire & Rescue was dispatched to a commercial fire at the Oregon Child Development Coalition day care facility at 1679 SE Enterprise Circle in Hillsboro.

Upon arrival, firefighters found heavy smoke coming from a single-level wood structure that was under construction.

The building was unoccupied, and five construction workers on site had already evacuated safely.

Within 30 minutes, firefighters had the fire under control.

The majority of the damage was contained to the interior of the structure. There were no reported injuries.

Investigators from the Hillsboro Fire Department are still working to determine the cause.
