Fire Damages a bedroom in East Medford Home - 11/21/17

Firefighters from Medford Fire Rescue battled an early evening house fire Monday. At 1700 pm Medford Crews were dispatched to a residential structure fire at 2925 Winter Nell as the fire was reported by the occupants of the home. Firefighters arrived to a single-family home with light smoke showing. After ensuring all occupants were safely outside, firefighters extinguished the fire, which was contained to a bedroom and its contents. A family family dog ran back into the residence as firefighters prepared to attack the fire. The dog was found safe in his kennel and returned to the awaiting family outside. The structure, which is valued at $200,000, sustained approximately $8,000 in damage, the department estimated. The cause was determined to be a large bean bag chair stored next to an operating electric wall heater in the bedroom.
