Fire Damages Oregon Storage Facility

First-arriving firefighters reported heavy smoke coming from the center of the storage facility.


Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue were dispatched shortly before 1:00pm to a report of a commercial fire at 6725 SW Bradbury Ct. in Tualatin on April 20. Multiple callers to the Washington County 911 center indicated heavy smoke in the area of the Golden Key Mini Storage.

First-arriving firefighters reported heavy smoke coming from the center of the storage facility.

Once inside the facility, firefighters reported smoke and flames from at least one unit, with several surrounding units threatened by fire.

Difficult access to the complex forced firefighters to stretch several hose lines by hand into the complex. Firefighters also had to remove the contents from several units.

Firefighters were assisted on scene by firefighters from the Lake Oswego Fire Department.

It took approximately 20 minutes for the 25 firefighters on scene to bring the fire under control, and fire damage was limited to four units in the complex.

There were several surrounding units that sustained heat and smoke damage.
