Farmington Square Applauds Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and On-Site Staff for Swift Response to Apartment Fire


Farmington Square Beaverton extends its deepest gratitude to the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue (TVF&R) for their rapid and effective response to a fire at an apartment complex on the SW 14300 block of Farmington Road, located behind Farmington Square, this morning.

The fire was reported around 7:00 A.M., and TVF&R quickly arrived on the scene. Thankfully, their swift action extinguished the blaze before it could spread, and a subsequent search confirmed that no occupants remained in the building. Notably, Farmington Square's building and residents were unaffected by the fire.
