Federal air quality monitors showed unhealthy levels of fine particulate in the area because of the March 12 fire. Residents in an area bordered from Northeast 60th Avenue to East 76th and Columbia Boulevard to Alberta Street were ordered to immediately leave their homes.

Fire officials said Tuesday they are still investigating possible causes of the fire.

The fire started in a vehicle yard near Northeast 75th Avenue and Killingsworth Street on Monday morning.

Air quality has returned to normal and all evacuation orders have been lifted in the area of a huge Northeast Portland fire. Clothing should be laundered and the home given a good cleaning.

About 11:30 a.m., the Fire Bureau started evacuating people from homes along Northeast 75th Avenue and said people within a mile of the fire should shutter doors and windows and turn off HVAC systems.

Firefighters said Northeast Killingsworth Street will be closed until further notice.
