FAIRVIEW, Ore. (KOIN) — Fire caused extensive internal damage at a Fairview home Wednesday afternoon, but no one was at home at the time.

Gresham fire inspector Shawn Durham told KOIN 6 News initial indications show the fire may have started outside the house on Northeast Interlachen Lane, between Blue Lake and Fairview Lake.

Water supply is an issue in that neighborhood, and firefighters had to use a hydrant around the corner because the one closer to the house could not put out enough water.

The investigation continues.
