PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A vacant house fire spread to a carport, shed and trees in Forest Grove early Monday, bringing more than two dozen firefighters to the scene.

The fire crews arrived in the 2000 block of Filbert near 21st Avenue around 5:45 a.m. , Forest Grove Fire & Rescue said. It took firefighters about 25 minutes to put the fire out and another 90 minutes putting out hot spots.

The cause of the fire isn’t known, but authorities believe transients may have been using the property at the time.

No one was hurt.
