One person hurt in SE apartment fire

One person was treated for smoke inhalation after a fire damaged a Southeast Portland apartment complex Tuesday night.

Portland Fire and Rescue crews were called at about 9:42 p.m. Oct. 29 to the eight-unit complex at Southeast Powell Boulevard and 40th Avenue, where they found a fire burning in one unit. Firefighters extinguished the fire, which was confined to the single unit.

The apartment’s occupant was taken to a local hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation. The person’s name and medical condition was not released.
