Report of Smoke Clears Justice Center in Downtown Portland but Officials Say No Fire Found

Portland, OR -- 

Reports of smoke in a 16th-floor boiler room at the JusticeCenterin downtown Portlandbriefly cleared the building this afternoon.

Some crews are still at the building, located at 1111 S.W. 2nd Ave., but Portland Fire & Rescue spokesman Paul Corah said no fire was found and an electrical problem might be to blame.

The Portland Police Bureau, which is housed in the building, tweeted about the incident just before 3:30 p.m., saying, "Fire alarm on 16th floor of Justice Center, some smoke seen. All out safe, Portland Fire onscene."

The bureau later posted pictures of the incident on its Facebook page and thanked firefighters for responding to what it called a water heater problem.
