MERLIN, Ore --- Rural Metro Fire Department says multiple explosions went off in a North Valley neighborhood Sunday morning.
It happened on Pleasant Valley Road. When crews got there a house was completely on fire and cars in the lawn were burning as well.
When firefighters were putting out the fire; more explosions went off. You can see in the pictures how debris was found all over the road. It is still unclear what the explosions were.
It turns out the house was under "a contractual agreement with another fire company based out of Merlin." Rural Metro Fire, Grants Pass Fire Rescue and AMR left the fire, but before they did they made sure no one else was inside and that the fire wasn't going to spread.
Right now we are working to find out the status of the fire and cause.
