GRANTS PASS, Ore. -- Rural Metro Fire says a family is now displaced after their garage caught on fire and then spread to the house.

This happened on Cedar Springs Drive in Grants Pass. 

Firefighters say when they arrived they found the 2-story structure well-involved, with all occupants safely outside. They were able to quickly stop the spread of the fire, saving many personal belongings in the rest of the house from being further damaged.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation. Firefighters say the occupants were reportedly outside preparing for new year celebrations and were not immediately alerted to the fire.

Rural Metro's Chaplain from the Southern Oregon Public Safety Chaplains team responded to help make arrangements for the occupants to stay with family.

Investigators believe fireworks improperly thrown away in the trash could have been the cause.
