EUGENE, Ore. – A fire destroyed a home in Eugene Thursday afternoon.
Fire officials said the cause of the blaze on the 1800 block of Pierce Street is under investigation.
The owner, who was the only person in the house, was able to get out unharmed.
Keith Perry, a passerby, said he called 911 after seeing the fire.
“Within about 30 or 40 seconds the fire was 50, 60, a hundred feet high,” Perry said. “There was just some plywood, a lot of plywood in the structure, it was kindling dry. It just went up in less than a minute.”
Crews shut down 18th Avenue between Chambers and Grant streets while battling the blaze. They were able to quickly put it out.
