Eugene, OR.  Eugene Springfield Fire (ESF) responded to a commercial structure fire in West Eugene on Sunday night. At  11:02  PM on May 19th, ESF Engine 8 responded to a fire alarm at a large commercial structure with multiple businesses located at 4216 W 7th Ave. The call was quickly turned into a full commercial structure fire assignment, as witnesses reported flames and smoke from one unit. Residents evacuated as ESF arrived.  Crews forced entry, and stretched hose lines for fire attack. Multiple engines and ladder trucks worked to locate and extinguish the fire, search adjacent occupancies, and check for fire extension. A large van was discovered to be on fire inside the occupancy, with fuel leaking and catching fire.  Thanks to quick response times, the fire was contained to the business of origin. The fire was placed under control, all units with smoke were ventilated and searched. There were no reported injuries and the Fire Marshal’s Office is conducting an investigation.
