Portland, Oregon (KOIN) — A large fire broke out near Gaston early Saturday morning, destroying a 1,000-square-foot barn, fire officials said.
Just before 4am, firefighters responded to reports of a fire on the northwestern Kiakat Road. When they saw the flames miles away, they sought backup, Forest Grove Fire Andresque said.
The fallen live line delayed the firefighters’ reaction and led them to seek further help.
Fire officials said “other situations” at the scene also delayed the fight against the flames.
Despite the complications, firefighters said they were able to save a nearby home from burns. One firefighter was treated for heat exhaustion, officials said.
This is a developing story.
