Flames from garage area prompt neighbors to call 911, five occupants unharmed

TVFR - An attic above the garage appeared to be the source of a fire on Lexington Terrace in West Linn. A West Linn home suffered a quickly spreading fire in the early hours of Thursday morning but all five people in the building were evacuated safely.

Multiple 911 calls were made around 4:15 a.m. and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue responded to Lexington Terrace, where flames were seen coming from the garage side of the home. Crews searched the home to ensure all occupants were evacuated and fought the fire from multiple angles, as it quickly spread from the attic above the garage and through the shake roof.

Cause of the fire is unknown and an investigator is on scene. West Linn Police Department assisted, as did Lake Oswego and Clackamas Fire District 1 departments.
