HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) — A fire department spokesman in the Portland suburb of Hillsboro says a two-alarm fire injured one guest at the Hillsboro Budget Inn and displaced more than two dozen others.
Firefighters found flames coming from a second-floor unit Thursday afternoon in the two-story, cinder block residential motel. Spokesman Bruce Montgomery says crews knocked down the flames in that room but found the fire had entered the attic space.
The spokesman says one person was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening burn injuries.
Damage is estimated at $100,000.
The cause of the fire is under investigation. The American Red Cross is assisting residents with temporary housing.
