A furnace fire caused an attic to burn at a vacant home at 1112 N.E. D St. in Grants Pass at approximately 6:33 p.m. Tuesday.
911 was called when smoke was seen billowing from the home’s attic vents and firefighters from the Department of Public Safety arrived within three minutes. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire and the flames were contained to the attic.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation but Public Safety wants to warn the public that furnaces and fireplaces should be serviced properly to prevent fires.
