Firefighters Extinguish Suspecious Late Night Fire

Posted on April 17, 2020

Firefighters from Dallas Fire & EMS responded to a house fire late Wednesday night. At approximately 11:21pm multiple people called 911 reporting a new construction, two story house was fully engulfed in flames. Fire crews responded to the area of SE Barberry St and SE Osoberry St to find an unoccupied, newly constructed, two story duplex, with heavy fire in one of the units. It took firefighters about 45 minutes to completely extinguish the blaze in the unit, while also providing protection to the adjoining unit and surrounding residences. The affected duplex unit sustained major fire damage, however because of the fire wall between the two units, the adjoining unit sustained mostly smoke and water damage. One firefighter suffered a minor injury. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. Dallas Fire & EMS was assisted by Polk County Fire District #1, SW Polk Fire District, Dallas Police and Oregon State Fire Marshal’s Office. If you have any information on this fire please contact Detective Jordan Houser at (503) 831-3516.
