At 4:39 AM this morning Portland Firefighters were called to a fire at the Oregon Motel (7920 N Interstate Ave.). When crews arrived they found one room on fire and another starting to burn. Firefighters worked to ensure residents were out and to extinguish the fire. At one point the fire got into a portion of the attic, but firefighters were able to keep it from completely destroying the structure.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and no occupants were injured, although 11 people will be displaced due to damage. Interstate Ave. was closed for a time between Lombard and Kilpatrick, but is now reopened. Investigators are on scene working to determine the fire's cause.
