CAVE JUNCTION, Ore. — Firefighters from the Illinois Valley Fire District responded on Monday afternoon to an RV fire that spread into an adjacent mobile home.

IVFD, Rural Metro Fire, the Oregon Department of Forestry and AMR responded to reports of a structure fire at 357 Turner Road south of Cave Junction along Highway 199 shortly before 1 p.m. on Monday.

Firefighters arrived at the scene to find that a fire had started by burning a travel trailer "which sustained heavy loss" before the flames and heat caused the fire to spread to the adjacent mobile home. Crews were able to stop the fire's progression mid-way into the mobile home.

IVFD said that power crews responded to confirm that the electricity had been turned off at the property, and a deputy from the Josephine County Sheriff's Office also showed up. Turner Road was shut down for the fire response.

Firefighters mopped up the fire and confirmed that it had been extinguished, though IVFD said that it would continue to check on the structure overnight to ensure there was no continued smoldering.

Although IVFD did not say how many people were displaced by Monday's fire, the agency indicated that the Red Cross had been notified to assist the fire victims.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
