ROSEBURG, Ore. -- No one was injured after a house caught fire in Roseburg Thursday.

Douglas County fire crews were called out the fire at 1:56 p.m. at a mobile home on Rosewood Drive in the Melrose area.

When firefighters arrived, flames were coming from the living room. They said the homeowner was using a garden hose to spray water into the room through an open window.

Firefighters said the fire spread quickly because of void spaces created by multiple additions. They said due to the collapsed hazard, the fire was challenging to put out.

No one was injured. Two cats also made it out safely.

The fire is under investigation but fire crews said it appears to be accidental.
