Fourteen trucks needed to try to put out fire, no one injured, but house totally destroyed

At about 7:05 p.m. on Nov. 14, a 4,000 square-foot home at the 28,000 block of Beavercreek was reported on fire.

By the time firefighters arrived, the entire home was burning and the fire fighters took an external or defensive posture against the fire. They were unable to get inside the home, but no one was hurt nor were any animals injured, Lieutenant Brandon Paxton, the Clackamas Fire District's public information officer told the Pioneer.

Since the area was rural, there were no water hydrants available and seven water tenders from Canby, Molalla, Colton and Clackamas Fire District arrived to help out. There also were a heavy rescue truck from Mt. Scott station, an engine from the 316 Hilltop Community Fire station and four heavy apparatus.

Firefighters from Clackamas are working to find the cause and damage estimates.
