Early Morning House Fire in Cottage Grove

DATE: 12-17-2012 @ 04:17 hrs

                  South Lane County Fire and Rescue responded to an early morning house fire at 1136 South Second Street Cottage Grove at 4:17 AM this morning. The occupants of the home were not in the home at the time of the fire. Upon arrival of the first fire apparatus, they found the home fully involved with fire. South Lane County Fire Rescue responded with three fire engines, one ambulance and two command vehicles. A total of fifteen firefighting personnel responded. Damage to the home and contents is estimated at approximately $220,000.  Firefighting personnel were able to control the fire to the home of origin with no damage to surrounding homes. A routine fire investigation in being performed by the Fire District Fire Marshal and the cause of the fire appears accidental at this time.
