(Portland, OR)  --  Officials say an electrical vault fire that broke out in a downtown Portland apartment building knocked out the building's power and forced area MAX lines to close temporarily.  Portland Fire & Rescue spokesman Lieutenant Rich Chatman tells "The Oregonian" the fire started in the basement of the building in the 16-hundred block of Southwest Morrison Street around 6:45 last night.  The four-story building was safely evacuated and firefighters extinguished the blaze.  Power to the building was out for several hours and shuttle buses were used to replace downed MAX lines.
