PORTLAND, Ore. ( KOIN ) — A Southwest Portland office building went up in flames early Wednesday morning, with “heavy fire” burning the width of the entire building, authorities said.
Just before 3:30 a.m., Portland Fire & Rescue shared on Twitter that the two-story office building, located south of Taylors Ferry Road on Southwest Barbur Boulevard, was spotted with fire showing through the roof.
Crews were quick to respond, but authorities said that overhead powerlines, as well as the distance to the nearest fire hydrant, were making progress difficult.
