An explosion at a food cart pod rocked downtown Portland early Sunday.
Portland police say they received calls near 4 a.m. from people reporting an explosion at the 5th Avenue Food Cart Pod on Southwest 5th Avenue and Southwest Harvey Milk Street.
The blast shattered “a large number of windows in the surrounding block,” police said in a press release. They didn’t find anyone who was injured.
Fire officials are investigating it as “fuel gas explosion with something like propane,” Portland Fire & Rescue officials wrote in a press release Sunday afternoon. They said there’s no indication that it was a device, and there’s no ongoing danger to the public. They said it damaged several food carts and nearby businesses.
Police closed Southwest 5th Avenue between Southwest Oak Street and Southwest Washington Street, as well as Southwest Harvey Milk Street between Southwest 4th Avenue and Southwest 6th Avenue, for much of Sunday morning.
