MEDFORD, Ore. — Despite a dramatic beginning, Medford Fire-Rescue (MFR) says that firefighters were able to get a house fire contained on Friday afternoon.

"The call originally came in just after 4 p.m. as an explosion followed by a home on fire," MFR said in a post. The house was in the 200-block of Micah Circle. 

When crews arrived at the scene, they found flames in home's garage and attic space. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to that area within about 10 minutes of the initial call, MFR said.

The cause of the fire remains unknown at this time, but investigators were on-scene and are looking into the cause.

"Please be mindful of fire traffic in the area for the next hou," MFR said. "As always, we are proud to serve our community."

MFR did not report any injuries, but NewsWatch 12 will be working to confirm that nobody was harmed in the fire.
