McMenamins Raleigh Hills Pub damaged in fire

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Fire seriously damaged McMenamins Raleigh Hills Pub early Tuesday morning, and though the restaurant is closed indefinitely, one pub manager said it's not as bad as it could have been.

TVF&R crews arrived around 3:30 a.m. at the pub, 4495 SW Scholls Ferry Road, and cut holes in the roof to vent the heat. That prevented the fire from burning more of the building.

"It appears it is mostly an exterior fire," said Kim Haugh with TVF&R. "It did extend into the attic area and it did charge the interior of the building with smoke so there is going to be some smoke damage to the interior of the building."

Investigators spent much of the early morning looking for signs about how the fire started. No one was hurt.

McMenamins employees salvaged what they could from the remains of the fire. As darkness lifted, contractors with phones in their ears were already assessing the damage. There are obvious signs of exterior damage, and the pub manager said inside there was a lot of smoke and water damage.

Work is already underway to get this longtime fixture near the infamous 5-way TV Highway intersection back on its feet.
