One injured in fire near Brightwood

A two-alarm structure fire near Brightwood sent one person to a Portland hospital with burns to the back and head.

Hoodland Fire District responded at 2:15 a.m. Monday, Oct. 21, to a report of a fully involved structure fire in the 59000 block of Chalet Place, which is off East Sleepy Hollow Drive and near the Sandy River, just west of Brightwood.

Fire had spread throughout the house and to nearby vehicles by the time the first firefighters arrived.

All occupants were able to escape from the rental home, which was not equipped with working smoke alarms.

A condition report on the burn victim was not available Tuesday morning. And a second injury occurred on the scene when a bystander tripped and fractured an arm.  

The fire went to a second alarm and additional fire units came from Sandy Fire District, Boring Fire District, Estacada Fire District and the city of Gresham.  

The fire was declared under control at 3:44 a.m. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
