NEWS RELEASE 08/09/10: Portland Fire & Rescue Complete Scene Investigation of 2nd Alarm Shamrock Fire



August 9, 2010

12:20 pm

Portland Fire & Rescue responded to a 2-alarm fire at 8101 N. Fessenden Street on Friday, August 6, 2010 at the Shamrock Market.


Responding Portland Fire & Rescue Investigators initiated an investigation. After conducting interviews and an examination of the fire scene, investigators have determined that the fire originated in an office area behind a row of beverage coolers.

Investigators identified several potential electric ignition sources within the office area, which was located in the northwest corner of the building. Further independent testing of electrical sources for failure analysis will be necessary to determine a cause. Such testing will be at the discretion of interested, responsible third parties.

The building, valued at $462,000, and the contents, valued at $250,000, were declared a total loss.
