Salem Oregon Apartment Building Fire

8/1/2019 (Permalink)

During the week of July 15th, 2019 an apartment buidling in Salem, Oregon suffered from a fire damage that displaced nine tenants.

The two story building which is 20 years old and consisted of three levels, suffered a fire that originated on the third floor. The fire grew quickly and burned extremely hot.

If there was a saving grace, there are two. All the tenants and pets escaped without injury and the interior finsish was drywall over plaster. The third floor took most of the fire damage while the lower leves had water, minimal smoke and cross containmination.

Plaster behind the drywall acted as fire barrier to the wood framing which in this case meant not needing a complete teardown to the foundation. With the plaster in place, demo will only need to be down the studs with odor remediaton and sealing, then rebuild can start.

The property owner maintained an excellent insurance policy which will him the property to be rebuilt to current code while offering a chance to redesign the building and bring it into 2019 for when the tenants return.

SERVPRO of Salem West is pleased to act as the mitigation and repairs contractor for this long time customer.
