Structure Fire Damages Newton Creek Home

Douglas County Fire District No. 2 responded to a structure fire early Monday morning at 2999 Parker Avenue off Newton Creek Road.  The alarm was received at 0103 hrs. for a reported house fire.  First arriving units reported a fully involved vacant home.  The fire had progressed to the point that the roof was partially collapsed when firefighters arrived.  Firefighters protected adjacent structures to prevent the fire from spreading while extinguishing the fire.
9 Fire District No. 2 personnel with three fire engines and two officers including a City of Roseburg Battalion Chief responded to the incident. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.  Fire investigators with the Douglas County Fire District No. 2 Fire Investigation Team will be on scene this morning determining the cause of the fire.

The home was a 1000 square foot 2 br. 1.5 bath home valued at $93,000 (according to Douglas County Assessor’s records).  The home was owned by David Wood and Davena Padgett.
