  1. David Campbell was one of the most loved and respected Fire Chiefs in Portland’s history. When he lost his life fighting a fire at the Union Oil facility, his mourners lined blocks and blocks of downtown Portland as his funeral procession passed by.

    The firefighter’s memorial at 18th and Burnside was named for him.

  2. I did a little research. Chief Campbell died in 1911 and there was an estimated 150,000 people who lined the streets. Portland’s 1910 census was 207,000. That’s amazing.

  3. Feeel free to explore the world of Minecraft and let
    your imagination run free, create your own world, explore your
    surroundings annd proteht your character from unexpected
    probvlems time for it to time. I had mined within the wrong directjon and exposed water into
    my underground cavern, oh dear. Consistency of material may also be helpful once you’re all set for
    that removal process.
