BEAVERTON, Ore. -- A neighbor went knocking on doors Friday morning as flames raced through the Country Oak Apartments on SW Electric Street.
"The minute I entered there was some explosion that happened, 'bang, bang!' right after each other," said the man. "So I got out because the smoke was really bad, it came right on my face and I couldn't get in there anymore."
Three units were destroyed and nine suffered smoke and water damage. The fire started in the kitchen of one apartment and spread to the attic. There's still no word on the cause.
One person suffered minor injuries.
