'The Chabad Center for Jewish Life appeared to be fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived, said Lt. Rich Chatman, a Portland Fire & Rescue spokesman. An external shed was also on fire.'
It was the second fire there in less than a week. According to the article: 'The center’s previous fire broke out Friday, and investigators determined it occurred because of an electrical malfunction in an upstairs office area.' This time, though, the power in the building was turned off.
Also from the article: 'On Tuesday night, vandalism - the throwing of eggs - was reported at the nearby Kesser Israel congregation in Southwest Portland.' Kesser is just down the street from Chabad.
