Out of curiosity how can a Marion County fire official institute a fire ban in another county they don’t have jurisdiction over? Or is there some kind of agreement where there is reciprocal authority to take such actions?

A 2-alarm commercial fire broke out early this morning at a Salem Strip Mall. Mattress world on Lancaster Drive suffered heavy fire and smoke damage after a suspicious exterior fire got into the roof system. Marion County Fire District #1, with assistance from Salem Fire Department, Keizer Fire District, Aumsville Fire and Turner Fire District took about 3 hours to find and control the blaze that was running in the roof-truss system. Due to the inability to find the fire, crews had to cut inspection and vent holes to isolate and ultimately extinguish the fire. Neighboring business were largely unharmed however they did receive some smoke damage. Woodburn Fire District and Mt.
Angel Fire provided district coverage during the fire. The exact cause is under investigation by Fire Officials.

Great team work, gang!

Was there just now having dog groomed. Petco is ok. But Servpro signs are up for cleaning up of smoke and water damage, matress world has a plywood front door.

Great job everyone! We had an experience like that with a much higher loss several years ago in the Academy Square Shopping Center. It was scary!

Good job everyone.

Good job guys!!!

Serious note: Glad everyone made it out safe. Sarcastic note: they took the hot summer deals a little to far.

Suspicious? Curious to find out the cause.

I don't see a fire. I know someone who works in that restaurant, hope everyone is ok.... Still don't see a fire or even smoke tho. Lol

I was listening to the scanner. The fire was in Mattress world's roof with extension. Not sure how much fire was actually in the buildings. Lots of smoke and water damage though. They had to RIP through the ceiling to fight the fire

Maddie Pelley...you guys ok?

Hope the animals and reptiles at Petco were ok. Brad Ingram hows your wife's store?
