They said it looked like an electrical fire that caught part of the floorboards of the house.
The resident of the house reported it started from a hallway light switch. Firefighters feel fortunate to have caught the fire early.
“Anytime a fire gets into a floor or underneath in the crawl space, there’s a danger that it would spread along that space,” said Capt. Chris Paskett, Eugene Fire Department.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the fire.
