Electrical problem suspected in Brentwood-Darlington house fire
A house fire at 6231 S.E. Flavel Street brought Portland Fire & Rescue crews to the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood at 5:03 p.m. on Friday afternoon, October 20.
The crew of PF&R Lents Station 11 arrived first, followed a minute later by Westmoreland Station 20's crew.
Although firefighters hooked up a water supply line to Engine 11, it took very little spraying to put out the fire.
"It's mostly smoke," a firefighter said in passing, as the crew stowed their equipment.
An Investigator wasn't dispatched to the scene; the fire crews determined the small blaze to have been "electrical in nature".
