Multiple agencies respond to structure fire in Rogue River

ROGUE RIVER, Ore. – Multiple agencies were called to a structure fire on West Savage Creek Road in Rogue River today just after 3 P.M.

When the Rogue River Fire Department arrived they found a large smoke column coming from a detached building with an involved fire. The homeowner said he was heating coconut oil on the stove for his business when he stopped to help his son with a flat tire and noticed the shop on fire.

There were about six gallons of oil in an eight-gallon pot. Officials say the oil likely got too hot and boiled over. However, the cause of the fire is still under investigation tonight.
