Midnight fire rips through Mallard Lane home

Firefighters battled a two-alarm blaze that heavily damaged a home in northeast Medford in the middle of the night.

Medford Fire-Rescue crews with help from Jackson County Fire District No. 3 stopped the flames before they spread to additional homes in the suburban neighborhood on Mallard Lane and even salvaged many items from the burning home, fire officials said in a news release this morning.

The fire was reported at 11:46 on Thursday at at 3877 Mallard Lane. Crews arrived within six minutes and faced a large fire that had begun on the outside of the home and had spread into the attic, the news release said. The flames were threatening nearby homes, so a second alarm was called to bring additional firefighters to the scene.

Crews stop the fire from spreading to adjacent homes although the intense heat and flames caused some damage. The home where the fire started saw significant damage.

However, the four people who live there got out safely and firefighters were able to salvage many items, officials said. No one was injured.

The fire's cause remains under investigation.
