Two families were displaced after a two-alarm fire burned a townhouse complex Monday afternoon in Vancouver’s Lincoln neighborhood.

The Vancouver Fire Department responded at 2:21 p.m. to the Lincoln Townhomes, 4718 N.E. Hazel Dell Ave. Crews arrived to find a two-story building with two units on fire. All occupants were out of the building, according to emergency radio traffic monitored by The Columbian.

A resident reportedly jumped from a second-floor unit, according to a Facebook post from Clark County Fire District 6, which responded to assist.

Crews called for a second alarm when firefighters found the blaze extended into the attic of the units.

As of 3 p.m., the fire was under control, according to radio traffic. Crews then called for AMR because of a reported firefighter injury but canceled the ambulance before it arrived.

Crews also called for the Red Cross to help the displaced residents.

The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office responded to investigate.
