House burns after being condemned

Medford, Ore. -- The Medford Police department and Medford Fire and Rescue are investigating a suspicious structure fire. It broke out just after 2:00 a.m. Friday morning near Ivy and 5th streets.

Investigators say the home was recently condemned and the residents were evicted Friday afternoon. One witness told NBC5 News that he saw flames start on the outside boards of the house.

Fire crews decided to let the structure burn because it was a complete loss. A nearby apartment building was evacuated.
