BROOKINGS, Ore. -- 21 firefighters from 4 different agencies came together to save a historic bed & breakfast this morning.  Just before 8 a.m., police and fire agencies were called to the South Coast Bed and Breakfast on Redwood St. for a fully involved structure fire.  The Brookings Fire Chief tells NewsWatch 12 that one person was inside one of the apartments, but she managed to escape with only minor smoke inhalation and the Chief says she should be okay.

The fire burned a building built in the mid-1900's that used to be a garage with an apartment overhead.  The fire chief says recently the garage was also converted to an apartment.  The chief says when the fire got out of a window, it quickly consumed the building because of the Cedar Shake Siding.  The historic bec and breakfast building was not affected.

The State Fire Marshall is on the scene as of 1pm Wednesday and was expected to begin investigating within the hour.  

A call to the B&B affected was picked up by an answering machine.
