SHERWOOD, Ore. (KOIN) — Crews responded to an early morning fire in a Sherwood home’s garage Saturday.
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue worked to extinguish the 2-alarm fire in the 22400 block of Meissinger Place as well as work to protect the neighboring homes around 6 a.m.
When crews arrived, the garage was fully engulfed in flames and fire was coming out of some of the windows on the first floor.
Within less than an hour, crews managed to get the fire under control and worked to put out hot spots.
The couple who owned the home and a guest were able to make it out safely. A man was evaluated for smoke inhalation at the scene, but was uninjured. However, officials said the couple’s 2 dogs died in the fire.
Fire investigators said the home didn’t have a fire sprinkler system and is most likely a total loss.
The fire started in the garage, but the cause remains under investigation.
