This morning at 5:55 am a Portland Police Officer on patrol noticed smoke in the area of 3600 NE Martin Luther King JR BLVD. The officer called for Portland Firefighters to check as the smoke was increasing. Fire crews responded and found a fire at Mack & Dub's Excellent Chicken and Waffles.
The fire was quickly extinguished, but it had already burned through a portion of the roof. No injuries were associated with this fire and this was the only building affected. Fire investigators are working to determine the fire's cause and to estimate damages. A portion of NE MLK JR Blvd. was closed for a time because of the fire, but it has since reopened.
