Firefighters contain eyre peninsula blaze in west Portland
Crews were already battling the fXO 카지노ire and were treating areas where the structure stood for an evacuation order.
The first call from residents came in at 11:45 a.m., after firefighters had been battling the blaze. Two homes were damaged, one collapsed and the other was evacuated. A neighboring business was damaged. A number of businesses and homes were without power.
The structure was “completely destroyed,” Portland Fire Bureau spokesman John Stauber told reporters Friday morning.
“It looked like a big, old school. It looked like it had taken years to come up.”
Crews have used several helicopters and aircraft to help to fight the blaze. On Friday morning firefighters continued to monitor the fire, and also conducted a fire drill. They continued to search for evidence as weather continued to push the fire towards the north.
Pierce said the structure had no interior walls and was surrounded by trees. The roof was completely gutted. There were no exterior walls on the other side of the structure, which had no exterior walls, the department said in a news release.

The damage at the west end of the residential property line was less extensive.
There was also damage to the front of two buildings in Southeast Portland that were partially damaged by a fire last year, the department said.
