Local Clackamas Bike shop damaged by mid day fire (Photo) - 08/17/17

Clackamas Cycle world employee began smelling and seeing smoke shortly before noon today at their store located at 11493 SE 82nd ave. No one was injured as the employee quickly activated 911 after fleeing the structure. Firefighters found a fire on the exterior of the building that had extended into the wall and attic space. By quickly attacking it from both inside and out they were able to minimize the damage. While still under investigation it is thought to have started after someone was burning weeds with a propane torch.

Clackamas fire wants to remind everyone that fires of any kind can spread rapidly due to the extremely dry conditions. Burning weeds, especially alongside a structure is never a good idea.

Total Burn Ban for all areas within Clackamas Fire District #1 - 08/02/17

Clackamas Fire District #1 fire officials have issued a total outdoor burn ban for all areas within the Fire District and moved the fire danger level to EXTREME, beginning Tuesday, August 1, 2017 at 5:00 p.m.

The burn ban was issued due to high temperatures, extremely dry conditions, and lack of any recent rainfall. The Fire District will likely stay in a total burn ban until the end of fire season and conditions change, said Deputy Chief Doug Whiteley.

The ban includes recreational campfires, fire pits, yard debris, and agricultural burning. Fire District officials won't be issuing any burn permits until further notice.
People living in rural areas are encouraged to takes steps to protect their homes and structures by maintaining defensible space from any vegetation. Additionally they should ensure adequate access on their property to firefighting equipment.

Smokers should ensure cigarettes are completely extinguished and thrown away in proper receptacles. Unlawful outdoor fires during a declared fire district-wide burn ban are deemed a hazard to public safety and could result in a Fire District response, fire extinguishment, and invoicing of cost recovery fees for Fire District actions taken.

2006 Street of Dreams house fire (Photo) - 07/28/17

This morning around 0920 Clackamas Fire responded to 18158 S. Grasle Rd. in Oregon City to a report of smoke coming from a home/garage. Upon arrival, they found smoke and fire coming from the roof of a roughly 5700 sq ft 2007 Street of Dreams home. Although a sprinkler system was installed, the attic space was not equipped with one. Due to the vaulted ceilings and lack of sprinklers in the attic, fire fighters were unable to get to the seat of the fire. It took over an hour to extinguish the blaze and the home suffered significant damage. No one was injured and while one dog is still reported missing, neighbors stated they saw it fleeing the home. The fire is under investigation
