CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — A house fire that began early Tuesday morning has left one family without a place to live, according to the American Red Cross.

Units from the Illinois Valley Fire District (IVFD) first responded to the fire in the 400-block of Beebe Drive at 12:45 a.m., where they found a two-story structure engulfed in flames. Crews from Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) and AMR also responded.

IVFD had little to report by 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning, saying that crews stayed for several hours doing mop-up operations, and that the cause of the fire was still under investigation.

According to the American Red Cross, the house on Beebe Drive was a single-family home, and the fire displaced two adults and a dog. The Red Cross is currently offering temporary housing, food, clothing, comfort kits with toiletry items, information on recovery services, and health/mental health services.
