One Seriously Injured in Two Alarm Aloha House FireSalem-News.com
(ALOHA, Ore.) - Update: 5pm November 20th Woman Injured in Aloha Fire Succumbs to Injuries
Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue's Aloha Station 62 rescued a woman from a burning home this morning. She was quickly transported to Legacy Emmanuel Hospital with life threatening injuries.
A neighbor called 911 at 9:44 Saturday morning reporting smoke and flames coming from a two story home located at 1756 SW Harvey Way in Aloha.
Firefighters aboard TVF&R's Squirt 62 arrived in less than five minutes. Firefighters immediately encountered an off-duty Portland firefighter who notified them that a resident had reported that someone was still inside the house on the second floor.
The TVF&R firefighters from Aloha pulled a hose-line from Squirt 62 and entered the home to perform a rescue. They quickly located a female patient on the second floor of the home, removed her from danger, and placed her in a waiting ambulance. The patient was suffering from smoke inhalation and was transported by Metro West ambulance to Legacy Emmanuel Hospital.
Because of the fact firefighters were performing a rescue, firefighters called for a second alarm which brings additional engines and trucks to the scene. As more firefighters from TVF&R and Hillsboro Fire and Rescue arrived at the home, firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and stopped further damage to the structure less than 20 minutes after the initial 911 call.
A team of TVF&R invesigators is working to determine the cause of the fire. The residents of the home will be staying with family members nearby until the home can be repaired.
