LINCOLN CITY, Ore. – A Lincoln City condo building was evacuated early Saturday morning after a fire started on the third floor.
A woman who lived in the unit where the fire started was taken to a hospital with burns on her hands, according to Captain Jim Kusz with North Lincoln Fire and Rescue. No one else was hurt.
The fire started just before 3 a.m. at the Sea Gypsy. The fire spread to additional units and caused smoke and water damage to other units on the first and second floors, Kusz said. The cause of the fire is unclear.
The woman and her golden retriever awoke to her smoke alarm and saw the fire in her condo. She tried to use a fire extinguisher to put out the fire, but burned her hands, Kusz said.
The woman's dog escaped but has not been found. North Lincoln Fire and Rescue is asking anyone in the area who spots a female golden retriever to call Lincoln City police.
Another person who lives at the condos was taken to a hospital for an unknown medical reason later in the morning, Kusz said.
Two of the units were destroyed. All 84 units were evacuated.
It’s unknown when residents will be able to return.
