PORTLAND — An early morning fire at The Yards apartments in Northwest Portland has sent one man to the hospital. Crews found smoke and water coming from the unit when they arrived at 6:30 a.m.
When they got inside, they found a man on the floor next to a couch that had burned. The fire was put out by fire sprinklers before fire crews showed up. The man was taken to Legacy Emmanuel Hospital with what appeared to be non life threatening injuries.
A fire investigator says the fire was started by a cigarette and caused about $10,000 in damage.
