Portland Fire responded to a commercial fire at 510 NW 3rd Ave. First arriving crews reported fire at the rear of the structure from both the first and second floors.
This location was vacant, and had previously been the location of a 2-Alarm fire on August 11 of this year. A cursory search revealed no occupants, but the incident commander withdrew firefighters and ordered an exterior offensive attack due to concerns about the structural integrity being compromised from the previous fire.
The fire cause is still under investigation. This press release will be updated when the investigation concludes.
