At 2:30 p.m. today, multiple callers to 911 reported a house on fire in the 14000 block of Northwest Cornelius Pass Road, north of Skyline Boulevard in Multnomah County. Firefighters from Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and Hillsboro Fire & Rescue arrived approximately 10 minutes after being dispatched to find a single-family residence completely engulfed in flames. Crews immediately began an aggressive fire attack. Due to a lack of fire hydrants in the area, multiple water tenders were dispatched to the scene to shuttle water to the engines fighting the fire. It took firefighters just under an hour to gain control of the fire. With firefighters having to battle the fire from the narrow two-lane roadway, due to a driveway bridge not weighted for their engine, along with the shuttling of water and additional units responding to assist in firefighting efforts, Cornelius Pass Road was closed for several hours, between Highway 30 and Skyline Boulevard. The house was not occupied at the time the fire broke out. A TVF&R fire investigator is on scene and will soon begin the exhaustive process of narrowing down the origin and seeking a possible cause, which is unknown at this tim ...

Hemp now has something marijuana doesn’t: federal approval. A provision of the $867 billion farm bill Congress approved this week removes hemp from the list of federally controlled substances and treats the low-THC version of the cannabis plant like any other agricultural crop. If President Donald Trump signs the legislation as expected, it’s projected to rev up already-explosive growth in an industry that has a footprint in 23 states. The curious only have to look to Oregon to see the potential. Hemp production was effectively legalized here in 2015 as part of a pilot project authorized by that year’s farm bill. Since then, the number of licensed growers has climbed from 13 to 584, and hemp acreage has swelled from essentially zero to more than 11,000 acres, said Sunny Summers, the resident cannabis expert at the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The state’s hemp farmers are excited about their prospects, said Courtney Moran, a Portland lawyer who has long lobbied for legalization. “We’ve been living under prohibition for 81 years,” she said. Because it was early to the hemp market, Oregon has consistently been one of the top hemp-producing states in the country. In 20 ...

PORTLAND, Oregon – The Portland area and the Northwest has a strong windstorm warming, one of the strongest of the season so far.

Legislation being drafted in Oregon could become the nation's most dramatic effort to address the housing shortages and economic and racial segregation caused by zoning restrictions. Rep. Tina Kotek (D-Portland), speaker of the Oregon House, is drafting legislation that would end single-family zoning in cities of 10,000 or more: "The state’s housing crisis requires a combination of bolder strategies." WW has learned that Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek (D-Portland) is drafting a proposal that would require cities larger than 10,000 people to allow up to four homes to be built on land currently zoned exclusively for single-family housing. "The state's housing crisis requires a combination of bolder strategies," says Kotek in a statement. "Oregon needs to build more units, and we must do so in a way that increases housing opportunity for more people. Allowing more diverse housing types in single family neighborhoods will increase housing choice and affordability, and that's a fight that I'm willing to take on." Kotek's proposal follows a similar move this month by Minneapolis, Minn., where city leaders have enacted a plan that will end single-family throughout that city—a ...

PORTLAND, Oregon - As heavy rains move into the Northwest beginning Sunday, Pacific Power reminds its customers and the public to take precautions to stay safe and comfortable. “We work hard to prevent outages, but heavy rain and wind make it difficult to predict when and where an outage will happen,” said David Lucas, vice president of operations. “Our crews will be out there during the thick of it to help get the lights back on, but their safety and the safety of the public is our number one priority.” Pacific Power suggests these safety precautions: Stay away from all downed power lines and utility lines. Even if the lines are not sparking, they could be energized and extremely dangerous. Call 911 and report the outage to Pacific Power at 1-877-508-5088. This storm system may cause flooding. Be especially careful of any standing water or even soggy ground. A live down wire may seem to be a safe distance away, but is still extremely dangerous due to wet conditions. Don’t drive over downed power lines. “We encourage Pacific Power customers to text, call or notify us through our mobile app or website if they are experiencing an outage” said Barb Coughlin, vice president ...
