News Release
Early Morning Fire Burns Tippy Canoe (Photo) - 01/17/20

Corbett Fire responds to early morning restaurant fire

Corbett Fire District 14 responded to a fire this morning at Shirley's Tippy Canoe Restaurant, 28242 E Historic Columbia River Highway in Troutdale.  The call came in at 5:03 AM by a passerby.  Multnomah County Sheriffs Deputies were first on scene and reported heavy fire from the 2nd floor windows of the unoccupied building.

Corbett Fire dispatched three engines, two 3000 gallon water tenders and a chief officer, Gresham Fire and Rescue assisted with an engine, a 104' ladder truck and a battalion chief, Clackamas County Fire District 1 assisted with a 3000 gallon water tender.  There were no firefighter injuries.

A nearby 200 gallon per minute fire hydrant was supplemented by a water shuttle with the 3000 gallon water tenders.  Gresham's Truck 71 was able to apply water from its aerial ladder making fire control much quicker.

Unfortunately, with such an advanced fire on arrival, the structure and its contents are a total loss.  A loss estimate is not yet available.

Gresham Fire and Rescue investigators are leading the investigation.  The fire's cause has not been determined at this time.
