PORTLAND, Ore. - Several vehicles went up in flames late Sunday evening at a tow lot in southeast Portland.

The fire started just before 10 p.m. at the A&B Towing lot at 5840 S.E. 111th Avenue.

Firefighters initially had a tough time putting out the flames because of limited fire hydrant availability. An electric fence surrounding the lot also created an additional hazard.

Fire investigators are looking into what happened.
