Five escape burning home in West Linn

Early morning fire damages West Linn home

WEST LINN, Ore. -- Five people escaped a burning West Linn home early Thursday morning.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue crews were dispatched about 4:15 a.m. to the home near Lexington Terrace and Derby Street.

When they arrived, flames were shooting out from a roof on the back of the home. Most of the fire damage was limited to that part of the house.

One of the men staying inside the home said he noticed smoke coming out of the ceiling lights in his bedroom. He said several people were staying at the home ahead of a Saturday wedding.

All five people inside escaped without injury.

Though bridesmaids dresses were damaged, the ceremony will go on.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

Early morning fire breaks out at home in West Linn. People we spoke with who were inside say there were five people staying at the home, some of them visiting from out of town for a wedding this weekend. Some bridesmaids dresses were burned but one man we spoke with said the wedding will go on.
