PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A 2-alarm fire destroyed a 150-year-old building owned by a winery near Dundee, according to fire officials. 

The fire at 5535 Shepard Lane off Highway 99W was reported shortly after 4 p.m.

Dundee Fire Department Chief John Stock said that by the time crews got to the scene, the flames were rising through the building’s roof and quickly spread to the main part of the structure. 

Fire officials said the 2-story building, which was originally used to dry walnuts and was currently storing a collection of valuable wines, farm and wine-making equipment, was destroyed. He said the fire also destroyed a second, smaller 2-story building that was being used as an office. 

No one was hurt. Authorities said the cause was likely electrical. 

The buildings were owned by White Rose Estate Winery and the fire damages were estimated at $1 million.
