Firefighters responded to a house fire in southeast Portland on Sunday. Firefighters were called to the 2500 block of Southeast 87th Avenue just before 1 p.m., according to Portland Fire & Rescue. When crews arrived, they reported seeing a fence on fire with the flames moving into the attic of a nearby house. Crews searched inside the home for any people trapped inside while working to put out the flames. No one was found inside, and the fire was extinguished quickly. No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is under investigation. PF&R is crediting several neighbors who saw the fire and called 911, saying their quick actions helped firefighters minimize the spread of the fire. A resident of the home spoke with FOX 12 and said two dogs were spooked by the fire engine and they ran away. The black lab mix is named Keet and the springer spaniel mix is named Luna. The dogs don’t have collars on but they do have microchips.
