At 0830 this morning, employees from All About Pets at 52567 Columbia River Highway in Scappoose, smelled smoke in the building and called 911.

Scappoose Fire crews arrived in just under 5 minutes and after looking through every nook and cranny, identified an electrical fire. The fire had about a 6-foot radius. The fire spread to non-load bearing structural components in a crawl space up above the second floor. There was a total of 3 fire engines, 2 ladder trucks and 2 chief officers. There were no injuries to any of the firefighters. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Crews were able to suppress the fire with about 10 gallons of water. Additionally, crews were able to employ special salvage techniques to protect the inventory and reduce the mess to the business.

The fire response was made up of Scappoose Volunteer and Career firefighters, a fire engine from Columbia River Fire / Rescue and a Ladder Truck from Portland Fire / Rescue in St. Johns. Additional help was received from ODOT, Scappoose PD and Columbia River PUD. Much gratitude to them and Shadley's Express Lane Espresso and Happy Garden Restaurant with providing drinks to the first responders.

All About Pets should be able to open up soon for pet sales and normal retail. No animals were harmed.
