Vacant Black Angus restaurant set on fire, investigators believe

OAK GROVE, Ore. - A fire broke out at a vacant building that used to be the home of a Black Angus restaurant and fire investigators have reason to believe it was intentionally set.

The fire happened around 2:20 p.m. Tuesday at the restaurant's former space at 16323 S.E. McLoughlin Boulevard. The building has been vacant for nearly a year.

When fire crews arrived, the sprinkler system was spraying water and had already extinguished the flames. While the damage was minimal, firefighters spent a fair amount of time clearing the building of smoke.

Fire investigators found multiple spots where the fire had ignited, leading them to believe that arson is to blame.
