PORTLAND, Ore. – Police are looking for suspects after someone set fire to at least seven recycle bins along a Southeast Portland street Tuesday night.
The fires started after 11 p.m. along Southeast Holgate Boulevard between 129th and 132nd avenues.
Neighbors said they first thought someone was barbecuing, but then they spotted the flames from recycle bins along the street.
“I saw a flame, went to get my extinguisher, found it, then I went down the street and there’s like four more burning down there,” said Larry Riskey. “Then I turned around and looked back this way, there was three more down there.”
Riskey and neighbor Joshua Hudson put out most of the flames themselves.
No one was hurt.
