The Roseway Theater appeared to be overtaken by flames and smoke, but it’s unclear how much damage the theater has sustained.

According to Portland Fire & Rescue, crews began fighting the fire from the outside and reported portions of the building’s interior had collapsed.

No injuries have been reported. PF&R has not reported a cause for the fire.

The Roseway Theater was built in 1924 during the silent film era.
