Fire heavily damages Eugene home.

Byline: The Register-Guard

A fire Tuesday morning ravaged half of a two-story house on Donald Street, doing more than $200,000 worth of damage.

By the time firefighters arrived at 3660 Donald St. at 10 a.m., the northern half of the wood-frame home was engulfed, District Fire Chief Dave Coleman said. A minivan in the carport also was on fire.

A couple bought the home three months ago, and the woman was home alone with the dog when she smelled smoke downstairs and went to check. She saw fire, went to a neighbor's house and dialed 911, Coleman said.

Three fire engines, a ladder truck and about 20 firefighters responded.

The blaze demolished the northern half of the house, but the southern half is structurally intact, though smoke damage was heavy, Coleman said. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
