Home burns in West Medford fire

MEDFORD, Ore. – First responders contained a house fire Wednesday near Sherm’s Thunderbird in West Medford.

It happened around noon. While the fire didn’t spread to neighboring homes Medford Fire-Rescue said the house is no longer livable.

A bystander said while firefighters responded quickly the fire spread just as fast.

“We noticed some smoke coming out. The smoke was small in the beginning, like a barbecue. But it just got a little bit bigger and bigger,” said Robert Vasquez.

19 firefighters and 5 engines responded. Medford firefightesrs said the cause is still under investigation. Everyone at the home got out safely.
