EUGENE, Ore. — Crews responded to a fire on the 900 block of W. 8th Ave. in Eugene early Tuesday morning.

The first calls came in just after 5 a.m. Firefighters said personal belongings in the basement were on fire. They rescued four people from the home. One victim suffered from smoke inhalation and was transported to the hospital.

Officials said there was no power to the home and the smoke alarm was not working. Fortunately, a passerby saw smoke and called 911.

Investigators say there was smoke damage to the home. The cause is under investigation.

Fire crews put out a fire at the same home just last month.
