PORTLAND, Ore. -- A large fire broke out Thursday morning in the Northeast Portland building that Big's Chicken shares with several apartments.
Two people in the building were rescued by firefighters with ladders. A third person jumped out a window to escape. All three were being treated for their injuries, and firefighters say all will survive. The two victims rescued down ladders suffered from smoke inhalation, the man who jumped injured his leg.
Portland Fire and Rescue said an electrical issue caused the fire.
Another resident living on the bottom floor told KGW the smoke filled his apartment very quickly.
The Glisan Street off-ramp from Interstate 84 was temporarily closed as a precaution.
