The Portland Police Bureau, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers of Oregon, is asking for the public's help in identifying two persons-of-interest in an arson fire.

On May 7, 2013, at 3:17 a.m., Portland Police and Portland Fire & Rescue personnel responded to the Wild Orchid Gentlemen's Club, located at 15826 Southeast Division Street, the report of a fire outside the bar.

Investigators learned that a fight occurred in the parking lot right after closing but was quickly broken up by club security. After the fight was over and everyone left, a fire started outside the club, which damaged the building.

Surveillance video is being released of two people that are persons-of-interest to investigators.

Investigators would like to hear from anyone with information on the identities of the two persons-of-interest or information on the fire.
