(TUALATIN, Ore.) - Firefighters in Tualatin were called to an apartment fire at the Amber Court Apartments, located at 692 SW 201ST Avenue in Washington County, last night at 10:22 p.m.

On arrival, crews found heavy fire coming from one side of a 2-story building and thick black smoke coming from the eaves.

While firefighters evacuated the building and did a search of the affected units, other crews began a quick attack on the fire.

No one was found in the structure and firefighters had the fire knocked down within 25 minutes.

The fire started in a single apartment unit on the 2nd floor, however, the exact cause remains under investigation at this time.

Four of the eight apartment units within the building sustained fire and water damage with the tenants of the units being displaced.

Fire crews from both Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Hillsboro Fire & Rescue coordinated successfully to extinguish the fire.

If you do not own your residence, renter's insurance can be a great benefit: it can help financially in a time of need, such as a residential fire.
