Title

Lincoln School, Forest Grove

Description

Former Lincoln Jr. High School goes up in flames. Lincoln School was built in 1938 and served the city until it was sold to Pacific University to become office space for the University. Fire departments as far away as Beaverton came to battle the flames but only a small portion of one end of the building was saved from the fire. The fire started in the front on the second floor but the cause was not determined.
