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.

Firefighters had extinguished the bulk of the blaze by 9 a.m. and shifted operations to clearing smoke, dousing hot spots and salvaging belongings.

The occupants of the home all escaped without injuries, according to TVF&R.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
