Fire forces evacuation of school, some nearby homes

Jones also said 20-25 miles per hour winds blowing from the east all day have made it more challenging to fight the fire.

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

The smoke was so thick, and traveled so far, that the Forest Grove Fire Department in Washington County sent out a notice that the source was from a fire in Northeast Portland and to not call 911 with queries. Multiple families were displaced and 16 cats died inside the buildings, fire officials said.

Firefighters expected to be at the scene overnight and into Tuesday morning to make sure the scene remained under control.

Portland Fire & Rescue has released several maps showing the affected areas and the evacuation areas.

Air quality was another concern for people in the area.

Purie asked Clinton why she believes more than 50 percent of white women voted for Trump in 2016. She also cited racism against Indians in her explanation to an Indian audience.

It's unclear how the fire started, but officials said it could be days before the cause is determined.

The air was described as "slighting unhealthy" for people in the immediate area. "Smoke from burning tires include toxic chemicals of synthetic rubber compounds".

KOIN, Portland, Oregon's CBS affiliate reported the fire starting at about 9 a.m. Portland Fire and Rescue officials said the wind-driven fire will likely burn for hours, according to KOIN. People inside homes in the immediate area of the fire were told to evacuate. For a while, the dogs were kept out in front of Gartner's Country Meat Market, where workers gave them bones and a man from the shelter played music to help keep them calm.

Oregon Humane Society said those evacuating pets and needing a place to house them, should call the shelter at 503,285.7722.

Students from Sacajawea Head Start were taken to Scott School, which is shutting its windows and limiting outdoor activity to protect children from the smoke.
