New Fire Station to Open in Oregon City (Photo) - 02/11/19

Clackamas Fire District #1 will hold a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for its newest building, the Hilltop Community Fire Station 16 in Oregon City on Tuesday, February 12 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The ceremony will begin with a presentation and history of the building, followed by the formal ribbon cutting at 11:20 a.m. Fire District staff and firefighters will be available for tours of the new station, immediately after the ceremony.

The new 12,400 square foot, state of the art fire station replaces the existing fire station that was originally built in 1972 and served the Oregon City community for 44 years. The construction of this building was paid for by funds from the Fire District’s general obligation bond that was passed by voters in May of 2015 for $29 million.

Hilltop Community Fire Station 16 was designed and built with future growth in mind, and will be a vital structure for delivering emergency services well into the future.  Currently, Hilltop Community Fire Station 16 houses Truck 316 with four firefighters, Medic 316 with two paramedics and one Battalion Chief, who will collectively respond to the over 3,000 calls for service each year in the Hilltop area.

The Fire District began the process for designing a new Fire Station in 2016 through a request for proposals for architectural and contractor services. The request for proposal process resulted in the hiring of Hennebery Eddy Architects, Inc. and Emerick Construction to complete the project.

The public is welcome to attend the ribbon cutting and open house ceremony to see this cutting edge building, visit our firefighters and ask questions. Hilltop Community Fire Station 16 is located at 19340 Molalla Ave., Oregon City, OR 97045.  Due to limited on-site parking, additional parking can be found at:

Wilco Farm Store

Third Floor Apartment Fire Displaces 31 Residents (Photo) - 02/06/19

Shortly before 10:30 this morning firefighters from Milwaukie Station 2 were dispatched to a report of a commercial fire alarm at the Hillside Manor, a Clackamas County Housing building located at 2889 Hillside Ct. in Milwaukie. As firefighters arrived they were notified by residents that there was an active fire on the third floor and that the sprinklers were going off.  The incident was upgraded to a Commercial Fire and additional fire units responded.  Firefighters quickly made access to the third floor to extinguish and confine the fire to the apartment that it started in and to shut off the active sprinkler head. 

The fire was brought under control, at the same time a thorough search was completed to ensure the residents were accounted for.  One cat was rescued from the apartment and treated with high flow oxygen however, one cat was found dead in the apartment. 29 adults and two children have been displaced by the extensive water damage and will be working with the Red Cross to provide temporary housing accomodations. No injuries were reported and the cause of this mornings fire remains under investigation.

Residential Fire Displaces Eight in Milwaukie - 01/24/19

Shortly before midnight on January 23, 2019 firefighters were dispatched to a report of a residential fire in the 12000 block of Ash Ct. in Milwaukie.  First arriving crews reported heavy fire involvement from the garage in a two story split level home. Firefighters were quickly able to extinguish the blaze, confine it to the garage and search the building to ensure everyone had escaped.  While the fire was contained to the garage, the living area was damaged by smoke which caused eight people to be displaced.  The residents are being assisted with funds from the Clackamas Emergency Services Foundation which serves those community members who have experienced a tragedy.

Fire Investigators spent the day on scene conducting interviews and searching for the cause of the fire.  At this time the cause is suspicious and the investigation will be ongoing. 

If you experience a fire in your home, it is important to leave the structure and not go back in for any reason.  Our fighters are highly trained and properly equipped to enter buildings that are on fire to remove valuables that may have been left behind.
