Two self-storage tenants who were reported missing shortly after a fire began Monday at Money Saver Mini Storage in Portland, Ore., were found uninjured offsite. The customers had visited the office at 7702 S.E. 92nd Ave. before the fire began, the source reported.
Firefighters arrived at the two-story facility at about 1:13 p.m. to battle a blaze in the attic of one of the storage buildings, according to Lt. Rich Tyler, spokesman for Portland Fire & Rescue. Although emergency crews were able to keep the blaze from spreading to other structures in the six-building complex, the three-alarm fire burned through the night, according to one source. Some of the building’s 453 units were severely damaged while others were deemed a total loss.
Fire crews from Clackamas and Gresham, Ore., assisted. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Money Saver Mini Storage operates five facilities in Oregon. The properties are managed by Storage Partners, which oversees 28 storage facilities in Oregon and Washington.
