PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Firefighters with Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue battled and brought under control a two-story duplex fire in Beaverton early Tuesday morning, TVF&R announced via Twitter.

Multiple 911 callers reported a blaze just after 3:30 a.m. in the 15000 block of Jaylee Street, and firefighters arrived within minutes to find a large fire and heavy smoke spreading from the first to the second floor.

Everyone affected was safely evacuated, and firefighters gained control of the fire within half an hour, officials said.

Although no injuries were reported, two duplex units were damaged so heavily they are now uninhabitable, TVF&R said. Four people were displaced from the destruction.

Investigators are currently working to determine what caused the fire.
