TROUTDALE, Ore. (KOIN 6) — Emergency crews responded to the Troutdale regional airport on Tuesday morning after getting reports of an aircraft emergency.
Port of Portland spokesperson Steve Johnson said the preliminary investigation shows the aircraft’s pilot reported having a “rough running engine.”
The aircraft landed safely but there was a small fire in the engine area, according to Johnson. Crews from Gresham Fire & Rescue responded.
The fire was put out and there were no reports of any injuries.
Johnson said there was a report of only one person on board.
