  • Giant fire at NE Portland scrap yard

Federal air quality monitors showed unhealthy levels of fine particulate in the area because of the March 12 fire. Homes in the area are in danger and some have been damaged according to witnesses.

Fire officials said Tuesday they are still investigating possible causes of the fire.

A large fire broke out Monday morning near Northeast 75th Avenue and Killingsworth Street at an auto salvage yard.

Portland Fire & Rescue suggested Tuesday morning that anyone returning home should toss food openly left out.

Portland Fire and Rescue announced that the last remaining evacuations were lifted just before 5 p.m., allowing an estimated 450-500 people to return to their homes. Dishes left out should be washed. An investigation into the cause began at 8 a.m., with heavy equipment starting to move vehicles on the property. Officials had no reports of injured people but said 16 cats and other pets died.

A duplex and two single-family homes were destroyed in the fire.

The fire started at about 9:15 a.m. Monday.

KOIN reported that the water supply is hard in the area, so fire and rescue officials are working with the water bureau to get more water to the fire.

Portland Fire & Rescue also shared a map of the one-mile shelter in place zone that was put in effect two hours ago.

The power has been turned off in the area for the safety of the firefighters.

More than 100 at Sacajawea Head Start, a school in the area, were safely evacuated by school buses to Scott School, another local school, where their parents were able to pick them up if they hadn't already. The plume of smoke from the multiple-alarm fire could be seen for miles. Scott School is having its students shelter in place. All students there will be kept indoors for the rest of the day.

The Oregon Public Health Association explained why the smoke is toxic.

"Due to the large amount of smoke in the air that potentially could have unhealthy carcinogens, and is blowing in our direction, we are choosing to keep our students inside at all three campuses and we will re-evaluate prior to lunch recess", the letter read.

An evacuation notice was issued Monday night from Northeast 60th Avenue to 76th Avenue between Alberta Street and Columbia Boulevard.
