Portland Fire & Rescue and the Portland Police Bureau have arrested a man who admits to setting several fires in northeast earlier this year. One of the fires damaged the roof and exterior walls of Lumberyard Bike Park and a storage trailer owned by the nonprofit NW Trail Alliance.
Allen Singerhouse is accused of starting the August 29th fire that began near a vacant lot at NE 82nd and Siskiyou. The fire quickly spread south toward houses and businesses across the street from Madison High School. In the end it caused more than $1 million in damages.
