One Dead, One Injured in NE Portland House Fire

Early Thursday morning a man died in a house fire in Northeast Portland and another man was sent to the hospital.

Fire crews responded to the house at 837 NE 69th Ave at around 1am.

The fire started in the downstairs bedroom where a man and his 86-year-old father were sleeping. The son tried to rescue his father but was unable to and he died at the scene.

Another family member was taken to the hospital.

We extend our condolences to the family and friends of the father and wish the family a full and speedy recovery.

In cases involving burn injuries, the medical bills can pile up quickly. In addition to healing, you may have to deal with insurance companies, which can be stressful, confusing, and time-consuming.

What to do if you have been burned in an accident:

  1. Seek immediate medical attention.
  2. Take pictures of the injuries, at all stages.
  3. Determine if there will be permanent scarring.
  4. Talk to fire/police/medical officials to determine the cause of the accident.
  5. If the accident could have been prevented, try to determine who was negligent.

If you think your burn injury accident was caused by someone else’s actions or negligence, you should speak to a Portland burn injury lawyer to understand if there may be compensation available. In many cases, burn injuries can be covered by insurance, and if you have long-term affects like hearing loss, vision loss, or visible scars, you should consult a burn injury attorney to evaluate your case.
