PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland Fire and Rescue crews responded to a fire at a Kenworth parts and repair building in Northeast Portland just before 4:30 Friday morning.

Crews found heavy smoke coming from several doors at the facility on Columbia Boulevard.

A ladder truck was used and crews found that flames had burned through a skylight and onto the roof.

Once inside fire crews found the cab's of two semi trucks on fire.

Crews used foam to extinguish the fire because of diesel fuel and oil leaking from the trucks.

There were working sprinklers inside the building but the fire was too large for the sprinklers to contain.

Arson investigators were called to the scene and have yet to determine the cause.

Damage is estimated at $1 million.
