Firefighters put out an outbuilding fire in Vancouver’s Truman neighborhood Friday afternoon.

The Vancouver Fire Department was dispatched to 4000 N.E. 50th Ave. at around 4 p.m. Friday, according to a statement from the agency.

Two fire engines and a Battalion Chief responded to the scene where smoke was found rising from an outbuilding behind a home.

The property’s owner, who was on the scene, had tried to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher before exiting the building.

The fire department said fire crews quickly contained the fire and kept it from spreading to other parts of the building. No one was injured.

The Clark County Fire Marshal’s Office determined the fire started with an overloaded power strip.
