Cottage Grove home damaged by bedroom fire
Fire damaged a Cottage Grove home last week but was contained to a bedroom and did not injure the homeowner, authorities said.
Cottage Grove firefighters were called shortly after 1 p.m. Feb. 9 to the fire at 8621 Hilo Trail.
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.
