Portland Fire says it's only a temporary place while they upgrade the storage site in NE Portland. Hey, they had to have someplace to put all the stuff.
Portland Fire & Rescue has been storing equipment used to respond to disasters in a building that would fall down in a major earthquake.
It’s a building the fire bureau paid $408,550 to buy—double what the building was valued at a little more than a year before its purchase—from an owner related to a former fire chief and bureau battalion chief.
Yeah, the cronyism and general corruption just never stops. No, it's not corruption; it's co-inkydink.
