A Two Alarm fire damaged the former fire station in old town at Northwest Third and Glisan.

Firefighters searched the building, but found no one inside.

The fire appeared to start in the back of the building.

Fire hoses blocked MAX train traffic until the fire was brought under control. All MAX lines were disrupted. TriMet put shuttle buses into operation to get passengers around the closure.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
