A woman and her baby escaped a fire that officials believe started in a bedroom of a four-plex on Meadowbrook Court NE.

Keizer Fire personnel arrived on the call after dispatch at about 2:30 p.m. Friday, October 26 to 4276 Meadowbrook Court NE. The resident, Brittany Johnson, was in the shower with her young child when she heard the fire alarm go off.

“I got out and saw smoke coming out of the vents and out of my room, and got out as quick as I could,” she said.

Keizer firefighters checked a common attic to see if the flames had spread.

No one was believed to be remaining in any of the building’s units. More information will be posted later. Cause of the fire is not yet determined.
