PORTLAND, Oregon - Portland fire investigators are still trying to determine what sparked a two-alarm fire in a northwest Portland building built in 1902. The fire broke out at 2400 Northwest 21st Ave. at about 7:28 p.m. Saturday. The first-arriving crews found heavy smoke coming out of the three-story building. Although it was found to be vacant, crews were worried that there were transients inside the building. Firefighters went inside and cut vent holes in the roof; they then put out the fire after an aggressive attack. No one was injured.

Trains in the area were delayed because of hose lines lying across the tracks. The fire caused about $241,000 in damage to the building, which was valued at about $730,000. About 70 firefighters responded to fight the fire.
