Portland funeral home neighbors complain

Portland, OR - Some northeast Portland residents say the Gable Funeral Home has been a good neighbor until it recently sold and the new owner began cremations.

Residents told KOIN the crematorium fires up two or three times a day, six days a week. They've complained about noise and smoke that they compare to the exhaust from a diesel truck.

The Department of Environmental Quality says the funeral home smoke complies with state law. The city is investigating a noise complaint.
