Crews battle grass fire along I-205

Firefighters put out the fire within 40 minutes

KOIN 6 News Staff - PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Firefighters were able to put out a grass fire Tuesday night along I-205 in just 40 minutes.

Portland Fire and Rescue said 5 engines were on scene to get control of the fire at NE 92nd Avenue and Schuyler Street.

Arriving firefighters found grass, shrubs and trees on fire.

After the fire was successfully put out, crews continued to stay on scene to monitor hot spots.

An ambulance was called when a firefighter suffered a medical issue. However, it was most likely related to dehydration and the heat.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
