Two-alarm fire reported at construction site

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday afternoon, Hillsboro Fire and Rescue went to a commercial fire on Southeast Enterprise Circle in Hillsboro.

They found heavy smoke coming from beneath the eaves of the single-level wood structure, which was under construction and unoccupied.

Five construction workers on the site had safely evacuated.

The extensive smoke and strong wind caused a second alarm to be called, and more firefighters came to help put out the fire.

Thirty minutes later, the fire was under control.

The majority of the damage was inside, and no one was hurt.

There's no word yet from investigators on a cause, and no estimate of damage at this time.
