PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue extinguished a fire that significantly damaged a home near Newberg Saturday morning.
Around 8 a.m. crews were dispatched to a house in the 13000 block of NE Parrett Mountain Road. Because the home was in an area without hydrants and limited access, the fire was able to grow exponentially.
