Firefighters battle Gervais structure fire.
(GERVAIS, Ore.) - Woodburn Fire District responded to a reported house fire at 454 Rondeau Court in Gervais Tuesday morning.
Lt. Jeremy Peil with the Woodburn Fire District, says the first arriving engine reported heavy black smoke and flames showing from the rear of the structure.
"The crew initiated a transitional attack, knocking the flames down from the exterior and transitioning interior," Peil said.
The Woodburn Fire District responded with 3 engines, ladder truck and air support unit. Mt. Angel and Marion County Fire District #1 responded with 1 engine each and Hubbard Fire District provided coverage at Woodburn's Headquarter's Station with an engine.
Peil says the fire is still under investigation, but preliminary investigation indicates that it may have started in a small detached shed equipped with commercial grade kitchen appliances.
The fire then spread to the residential structure.
