House lost in Molalla area fire
Local fire crews have been a bit busy during the past couple of weeks fighting the Clackamas County wildfires. But that didn't stop them from tending to a house fire on Sunday.
Crews from Molalla Fire, Colton Fire, Clackamas Fire and Canby Fire responded in the early morning on Sunday, Sept. 20, to a reported structure fire just outside Molalla near Feyrer Park.
Upon arrival, crews found a heavily involved house fire, with flames spreading to nearby brush, Molalla Fire said.
An aggressive exterior attack was successful to halt the fire's progress and keep the spread minimal.
All occupants made it out safely, and there were no reported injuries.
The house, though, is a total loss.
"We are saddened by the loss of this house," Molalla Fire said. "But we are thankful everybody was able to escape without injury."
