1 person injured in apartment complex fire that displaced 18 others in Washington County

A fire at an Aloha housing complex Wednesday night displaced 18 people from their homes and sent one person to the hospital with injuries, fire officials said.

Three dogs also died in the fire, according to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue.

Several residents called 911 around 6 p.m., reporting that an apartment unit was on fire in the complex off 185th Avenue, south of Baseline Road, fire officials said in a statement.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrived first and helped evacuate residents. Several Portland area agencies responded to help extinguish the fire.

The fire destroyed 10 units and caused smoke and water damage. Washington County Housing Services, which owns the building, and the Red Cross are helping the displaced residents.

Two other people were evaluated for smoke inhalation, fire officials said. They didn’t disclose the condition of the person who was sent to the hospital.
