PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A firefighter was briefly trapped in the smoky basement of a burning home in north Portland.

KPTV reports (https://bit.ly/1epzgB6 ) the firefighter was unable to locate a stairwell, so the commander deployed a rescue intervention team to locate and lead the firefighter to safety.

The fire started about 1 a.m. Thursday, and firefighters entered the home to search for possible victims.

The fire was quickly extinguished.
