News Release
Juveniles responsible for house fire. - 06/22/17

Fire crews responded to a report of a house fire around 5:30 yesterday afternoon. They arrived to find a row of arborvitae bushes on fire next to a structure. The fire grew out of control quickly, due to hot, dry conditions, and ignited the exterior wall of the house. Fast acting neighbors with garden hoses controlled the fire from engulfing the whole house.

The Eugene Springfield Fire Marshal's Office and Eugene Police Department were called to investigate. The fire was started by two 12-year-old males playing with fire. They will be charged with Arson 1.
