The Raccoon Press (ラクーンプレス?) was the centre for newspaper editing in Raccoon City, located in the Downtown district on Park Street.[1]

It was a newspaper service on Warren Street in Raccoon City was popular enough to carry an evening issue.[2] Its office building was heavily damaged in the infamous t-Virus outbreak, with the majority of it on fire on September 28. Its reporters were covering the outbreak and quarantine of the city.[3]

During the events of Resident Evil 3, Jill travels into the building while investigating the downtown area of Raccoon City. When she first enters the building, a fire shutter is blocking the stairs to the upper level of the complex. She is able to raise the fire shutters by pressing a button in a panel at the top of a vending machine. In the upper floor of the building, the fire has consumed parts of the stairway and blocked access to the second floor. There was some fire on the third floor but was still accessible.
