Aug. 01--Portland Fire and Rescue Bureau said a candle left burning throughout the night was the cause of an early morning fire today at a North Portland home. The blaze displaced five residents and left a firefighter with minor head and neck injuries.

Portland Fire crews arrived on the scene at 6:53 a.m. to a column of black smoke coming from the house at 5934 N. Borthwick Ave.

Officials were told all five residents, three men and two women, were out of the house when they arrived.

Four of the residents had to jump from a window to escape. One of the men suffered a shoulder injury and a woman twisted her ankle when they were escaping. The Red Cross was at the scene to assist the residents.

Twenty-five firefighters assisted in putting out the fire nearly 30 minutes after crews arrived on scene.

As officials began inspecting the scene after the fire had been extinguished, one of the firefighters, Rian Fields, an eight-year veteran, was injured when a piece of ceiling hit him in the head and neck. His injuries were mild and he remained at work today, said Portland Fire spokeswoman Kim Kosamas

Officials estimate damages to the house at $200,000. It is worth $250,000. In addition, belongings lost inside the house total $75,000.

Kosamas said the house is about 800 square feet. According to the city of Portland, it has one floor.

    Here's the repost that Bad Times tipped us all off to.
    This super sucks for the honey pot crew! Sorry guys.
    It's weird to say but i'm relieved it's not any more drama like the Foreclosure House, the title had me worried about that for a sec.

    we are all okay. some bumps and bruises after jumping from the second floor window. benefit shows will be happening to help cover medical bills seeing as the landlord and insurance company wont cover it.

  3. pc-pdx

    good to hear everybody is okay.
    Let us know if we can do anything to help. I'm sure people here would be able to step up and help in some manor. Help with a benefit show - help replace some lost stuff..
    Don't know what you guys need, but if you're out on all your equipment - I've got some extra cables and practice amps you guys can have when you get settled with the next step(?).

    I lived at that house for over a year. I hand built 3 of the 5 bedrooms there. So sad to see it go.

  5. GhOst

    Damn I'm so glad everyone is OK!
    Be well friends.
