Pacific Northwest gets blasted with heat; still, hundreds line up for Amazon job fair
PORTLAND, Ore.

In normally temperate Oregon and Washington, families generally get by on warm days by simply drawing shades and running fans. But a searing high-pressure system is expected to make Portland and Seattle hotter than Phoenix, at least for a couple of days.
