EUGENE, Ore. -- Neighbors on the 5000 block of Fox Hollow Road said they woke up to flames and screams on Monday at around 4 a.m.

They said they feared the fire would spread to their homes and quickly called 911.

“I am grateful we are all okay,” one neighbor said.

Eugene Fire and Rescue officials said the cause of the fire is undetermined but a possible factor could be a candle or cigarette being used near combustable material. There's $160,000 worth of damage, and one person was displaced. 

Eugene-Springfield Fire crews responded and said it was challenging to get equipment and personnel to the house fire because of the narrow driveway. Most of the emergency vehicles had to park on Fox Hollow Road.

The battalion chief said the fire was burning mainly outside the home at the back of the house.

Fire officials confirmed that the fire did spread to the inside of the home, causing damage to walls.

One person was inside the home at the time of the fire, and fire officials confirmed that person got out safely.

After fire crews got the fire under control, they went through the house to make sure no one was inside, and they did not find any occupants.
