NEWS RELEASE 7/26/13: Portland Fire & Rescue Responds to Commercial Fire in NE Portland

Firefighters were dispatched to a commercial building fire (1008 N.E. Russet St.) at 2:55 pm this afternoon. Truck 8 arrived to smoke coming out of the buildings roll up doors. All of the employees at the site had evacuated and were unharmed. The fire originated inside of the structure, but quickly spread up a wall and into the roof. After putting out the main body of the fire ( a vehicle that was getting weld work ), firefighters had to cut holes in the walls to get to the remaining fire. No one was injured during this incident and a damage estimate is forthcoming.
