Flames raced through a Southwest Portland apartment building Friday afternoon. The apartments are located near Southwest 35th and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway.
A resident who was trapped by the fire jumped from a third floor window to escape the flames. He was severely injured in the fall and later died at a hospital.
Two alarms were called to get enough equipment and personnel to fight the fire.
Everyone else escaped safely. No firefighters were hurt.
An investigation is underway to determine how the fire started.
