NEWS RELEASE 12/05/09: Fire Investigators Arrest Occupant In Apartment Fire


Portland Fire & Rescue (PF&R) responded to an apartment fire on SW Morrison at 3:29 pm on December 4, 2009.  When fire crews arrived at 3:31 pm, they found dark smoke coming from a third story apartment window. The firefighters immediately entered the building and extinguished the fire. The sprinkler in the apartment had been activated by the heat of the fire and had helped contain the fire. The fire was under control at 4:01 pm.

Firefighters received information that an explosion may have occurred that started the fire.  Fire investigators were called to investigate the origin of the fire.  Fire investigators conducted an investigation of the apartment. The fire was in apartment #410 and the occupant, David Lee Meacker, who was home at the time of the incident, was arrested and charged with Arson I (1 count) and Arson I-Measure 11 (1 count).

Fire damage to the structure was $10,000 and the dollar amount for water damage, due to an activated sprinkler head, is unknown at this time. Meacker was lodged at the Multnomah County Detention Center and will be arraigned on Monday, December 7, 2009.  His bail was set at $300,000.
