MEDFORD, Ore. — Police officers rushed into a smoking building to help evacuate people from a fire, according to Medford Police. 

Officers first responded to reports of a fire at approximately 2:07pm on Friday at the Valley Pines Apartment complex on Royal Avenue. The first officer on scene saw that the fire had spread to two units and was threatening several others. Five Medford Officers quickly entered the building to help people get out, while Medford Fire-Rescue began to fight the fire.

The officers helped several people get out until the smoke grew too heavy to continue. Two people were taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation and one person was rescued from a third floor balcony by a Medford Fire Department ladder truck.

Police Investigators and Medford Fire continue to investigate the cause of this fire.
