Around 6PM on Jan. 24, Portland Eng. 11 was dispatched to a house fire at 10808 Idleman Rd. in Clackamas county. I was at Sta. 7 so I hopped in with Batt. Chief 3. When we arrived there was a 5" line stretched out of sight up the hill so we had a long walk to the fire.
At the end of a steep, narrow, downhill driveway there was a large 1-story house well involved. Eng. 11's crew was in the rear hidden by heavy smoke.
