A building in southeast Portland went up in flames early Monday morning, prompting firefighters to launch an "aggressive attack," according to Portland Fire & Rescue. Around 3:30 a.m., fire crews went to the intersection of Southeast 79th Avenue and Southeast Stark Street. At the scene, they found the Portland Garment Factory showing fire from the second floor. PF&R said its firefighters made "an aggressive attack" and they deployed "aerial apparatus to ready for a defensive mode." At 4:20 a.m., the fire was upgraded to a third alarm. More than 70 firefighters responded to the scene. Just before 7 a.m., PF&R tweeted that mop up efforts were underway at the fire, which was contained to the Portland Garment Factory.
