Central Point home sustains severe smoke damage

A bedroom in a Central Point home was damaged by fire early Thursday morning, with severe smoke damage throughout the structure, fire officials said.

Crews from Jackson County Fire District No. 3 responded to the blaze at 12:26 a.m in the 3000 block of New Ray Road, according to dispatch records.

A woman who lives there — the only one at home — awoke to smoke detectors sounding, said Battalion Chief Jeff Bancroft. She exited the structure and saw smoke and flames, Bancroft said.

Four engines responded to the scene, with apparatus from District 3, Medford Fire-Rescue and the Jacksonville Fire Department. Crews had the fire under control about 15 minutes, Bancroft estimated.

The burned bedroom was unoccupied, according to fire officials. No one was injured, and no evacuations were required.

“The smoke damage to the house is really extensive,” Bancroft said. “It really smoked up and destroyed pretty much everything in the house.”

Some of the flames extended into the attic area.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation.
