Crews respond to fire at Camping World of Portland


FIRE BURNING ALONG I-84 RIGHT NOW. IT IS AT CAMPING WORLD NEAR 240 AND SANDY. A REPORTER IS LIVE. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY HAVE THE UPPER HAND? REPORTER: GOOD AFTERNOON. WE JUST GOT HERE NO MORE THAN 10 MINUTES AGO. CREWS ARE IN THE MOP UP STAGES. YOU CAN TAKE A LOOK AT CAMPING WORLD JUST OFF OF I-84 WHERE A STRETCH IS CLOSED. YOU CAN SEE SOME SMOKE COMING OFF OF WHAT I IMAGINE IS AN RV. A HUGE PARKING LOT FULL OF RVS. WE SEE SOME CHARRING UP THERE. ON THE WAY OUT HERE, WE GOT A CALL THAT THE FIRE HAD BROKEN OUT. IF YOU ARE SENT A PICTURE OF FLAMES BREAKING OUT. WE ARE GOING TO GO OVER AND CHAT WITH WITNESSES IN THE PARKING LOT. YOU SHOULD EXPECT SOME DELAYS AND CLOSURES. CREWS BEGIN MOPPING UP WHEN IT ONE POINT WAS A VERY LARGE FIRE. YOU HAVE TO THINK WITH THE WIND RIPPING OUT OF THE GORGE THAT THIS COULD HAVE BEEN A WHOLE LOT WORSE. THOSE FLAMES SPREADING WITH THE HIGHWAY. IT IS JUST LASTING OUT HERE. WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO MEET UP WITH SOME FIRE AND POLICE. ALSO, HERE FROM THE WITNESS WHO ESCAPED THE BURNING BUILDING. AGAIN, AT CAMPING WORLD JUST OFF I-84 WHERE A STRETCH OF THE ROAD DOES REMAIN CLOSED RIGHT NOW. ANCHOR: IF THERE’S ANYTHING ELSE, WE WILL BE SURE TO SWITCH BACK TO HIM.
