July 29: Portland Fire Pictures | NW 21st & Glisan

NW Portland Fire, NW 21st & Glisan

Scott Fish (scottfish.com) sent these pics over to us a bit ago of the Portland fire on NW 21st & Glisan.

From Scott:

Here are some photos from the fire that was on NW 21st and Glisan.
There were about 4 hook and ladder fire trucks and quite a few ambulances.  The fire dept closed down the NW 21st street in front of the building.  I heard that it was a 2 alarm fire.  It broke out around 5:30.

Update (from DP on Livejournal)

The fire started in the basement and rose up through the floors; the top two are a complete loss. Everyone got out okay and has been situated with the Red Cross, etc, but they won't be allowed to go back through at least tomorrow. Nobody knows what the cause is. Ladder #3 has the hottest guys. Only one person spotted using a RAZR to take a picture of the scene with himself in it. The Blue Moon is unharmed and open for business although their service still blows.

    I’m not sure your info is correct. I was standing near the fire chief, of whoever they had talking to the news crew, and he said that the fire originated in the attic and was probably electrical.
    My heart goes out to the residents of that building, but i’m quite pissed that my apartment(across the street) is saturated in smoke :[
