HILLSBORO, Oregon - At approximately 12:45 Friday, the Hillsboro Fire Department was dispatched to a fire at the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Keeler Substation on Evergreen Rd. Upon arrival, Hillsboro Fire Engine #3, found heavy black smoke and flames coming from a voltage control device located well inside the substation. The fire was burning freely and contained to the voltage control device. Following pre determined response plans, Hillsboro Fire command staff worked with BPA personnel to develop the appropriate response. It was quickly determined that mineral oil surrounding the control device, as insulation, had ignited. Often in situations such as this, the fire is allowed to burn itself out. Due to the heavy smoke being generated and understanding that as the atmosphere cooled the smoke would begin to settle closer to the ground, a plan was made to extinguish the fire. Washington County Public Health and local health care providers were contacted as a precaution in the event that the smoke began to settle before the fire was extinguished. The smoke from the fire did not present health risks beyond those for individuals with asthma or other respirator ...

MOLALLA, Ore. -- A Clackamas county family wants to know why a sheriff's deputy shot and killed their beloved pony. They claim it happened without them knowing, and for no good reason. Crista Fitzgerald said her family’s 30 year-old American Miniature Horse, named Gir, was fine - except for his old age. Gir was so healthy he was able to escape from his stall in a Molalla barn sometime overnight on February 18. "I locked his stall door, and I always do a double check. The next morning I came back out before I had class in the morning, which is around 10, and he was gone,” she said. Fitzgerald knew Gir couldn’t have gone far from the barn. "We started knocking door-to-door. And the first house we came to he was laying in their yard,” she explained. She thought Gir was taking a nap, but it turns out he took a couple bullets instead "We walked up closer and I bent down to pet him, and that's when I saw the pool of blood behind his cheek bones. The neighbor came out and told us she had called the sheriff's department and they put him down,” Fitzgerald said.

Tuesday, the preferred pipeline route for the Willamette Water Supply Program was shared with the Tualatin Valley Water District (TVWD) Board of Commissioners. Program partners, TVWD and Hillsboro Water, agreed last week to move the preferred pipeline route to the next round of technical review and continued public engagement. The preferred pipeline route will be shared with the other jurisdictions along the route during the next two months. The preferred route is more than 30 miles long, from Wilsonville north through Hillsboro and Beaverton. This favored route is the result of months of work reviewing multiple routes against selection criteria and getting input from staff, policymakers and community members. "It's a great step forward--the technical team started with 117 route options, and a combination of criteria-based research and local community feedback has narrowed it down to this preferred option." explained Todd Heidgerken, interim Program Director for the Willamette Water Supply Program.

A suspect red Ford Explorer had pulled into the garage of the vacant home in Happy Valley. A few minutes later, Chief Shane Strangfield of the Happy Valley Police arrived and staged in the area.

PORTLAND, Oregon - The Portland Community College Foundation is aiming for a "mission accomplished" proclamation when its fourth annual fundraising gala "lifts off" Friday, April 10. Set to take place at Pure Space (1035 N.W. Overton, Portland), this year's event - Lunar Landing: A Space Age Gala - begins with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m., followed by the program and dinner from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Annually, the gala attracts approximately 500 attendees from higher education, business and industry, as well as local elected officials, students, staff, faculty and alumni. This year's retro, space theme underscores the era in which PCC first opened its doors in 1961. But the theme also serves as a metaphor for what is possible, according to Mary Kalafatis, managing director of PCC's Foundation. "There was time, before 1969, when we didn't think a human could land on the moon - and we accomplished that. Similarly, there are students who don't have the money to attend college, making the idea of college outside their reach," said Kalafatis.
