PORTLAND, Oregon (KOIN) — Portland Fire & Rescue crews responded to three warning fires at the Roseway Theater on Sandy Blvd Saturday morning.

When the crew arrived at the building around 6:00 a.m., they reportedly found it filled with dark black smoke and began searching for a fire inside the theater. Initially, when fire began to burn from the roof, firefighters turned back and began fighting the flames from outside.

Aerial ladder trucks were used to pour water onto the building to prevent it from spreading to other businesses in the area. More than 80 firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze, officials said.

The crew was eventually able to control the blaze, but it continues to cool the hotspot.The crew will be on the scene all day, and an investigation could take at least several days, according to Portland Fire & Rescue. It is said to be of high quality.

City crews have been called in to help mitigate a water spill caused by firefighting efforts.
