PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Fire crews spent the early hours of Tuesday morning battling a house fire in the Ashcreek neighborhood of Southwest Portland.
The first calls came in just after 3:30 and the first crews arriving on the scene reported heavy smoke and fire coming from a house and a garage.
Crews were able to search the house and didn’t find anyone inside and there are no reports of any injuries.
Crews from Lake Oswego and TVF&R were dispatched to the scene and helped keep the fire from spreading.
Fire officials tell KOIN 6 News that neighbors reported squatters living in the house recently, but had been removed and were last seen there on Sunday.
