Fire damages Rogue River home

A fire caused some severe damage on a Rogue River house early Friday morning, but the home's two occupants and their pet cat made it out OK, fire officials say.

The fire was reported at 12:58 a.m. in the 100 block of Cedar Street. The Rogue River fire department responded to the scene first, then called for additional engines after seeing flames shooting off the structure's roof, according to Capt. Micco Holt.

Additional engines from Rural/Metro, the Grants Pass fire department, Evans Valley Fire District 6 and Jackson County Fire District 3 responded to the scene. Crews had the flames knocked down in about 25 minutes. Holt estimates about 50 percent of the home was destroyed, but added many of the contents inside were saved.

"The front two rooms are pretty much done," he said.

A dollar estimate on the amount of damage was not available. The fire's cause is not yet known.
