ASTORIA

WWII ship-building company designated as endangered

The Historic Preservation League of Oregon has designated a World War II era shipbuilding company as one of the state's most endangered places.

The designation of the Astoria Marine Construction Co. this week comes as it seeks a place on the National Register of Historic Places.

Declining business and its designation as a Department of Environmental Quality cleanup site cloud its future.

Astoria Marine Construction was one of 10 properties selected from nominations submitted from across the state. Others were in Portland, Salem, Corvallis and elsewhere.

PORTLAND

Portland police officers responded to the residence and found the boy unconscious. Rescue personnel arrived and tried to save the child, who was transported to a local hospital, where he died.

GRANTS PASS

Fire crews battle blaze that started near Interstate 5

Crews have chased down spot fires near a growing 115-acre wildfire that started Friday near Interstate 5 in the Grants Pass area.

About 50 firefighters were scheduled to work Saturday on containing and extinguishing the wildfire. Four fire suppression crews, four engines and two water tenders have been assigned to the fire.

Fire crews ignited unburned vegetation along the fire line, but the fire was not contained Saturday.

The state Transportation Department temporarily closed a lane of northbound I-5 in the area Friday afternoon.

City police also reportedly closed several nearby streets so emergency vehicles could use them.

There were at least two reports of homes damaged by the fire.
