Written by Press Release on September 10, 2022
Roseburg, Ore., — At 23:39 p.m. late Friday night Douglas County Fire District No. 2 units responded to what was initially reported as a structure fire on Follett Street in the Newton Creek area of Roseburg. First arriving units found a working RV fire in front of a residence. Fire crews made an aggressive fire attack while also preventing the fire from extending into the home. Police units that arrived on scene assisted with helping the property owner out of her house and to a safe distance next door at her neighbor’s house.
Fire crews prevented the RV fire from causing major damage to the property owner’s home. The
house sustained minor damages to the paint and one broken window. The owner’s sedan, which was parked next to the RV was also lost to fire damage. After an investigation of the fire, it was undetermined what exactly caused the fire. The fire origin was suspected near the RV’s refrigerator, but due to the extent of the fire damage correctly determining the exact cause would have been challenging.
DCFD2 responded to this incident with 3 engines, 1 command unit and 7 personnel. Crews were
assisted by Roseburg Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, PP&L and Avista gas.
