The homeowner was in a different area of the house when he smelled smoke and detected fire from behind the closed bedroom door, Cottage Grove Fire Chief Rick Redenius said.

A quick response helped to contain the fire to just the bedroom, Redenius said, but the house was pretty smoky.

The cause of the fire is unknown, Redenius said.

The single-story home was being rented.

A Woodbury fire crew assisted Cottage Grove during the fire.
