At approximately 4:51p today, dispatch received a call for a possible grass fire near OR62 and Shasta Ave in the Eagle Point area. The callout was charged shortly afterwards to a structure fire response.

Multiple engines and personnel from Jackson County Fire District 3 (JCFD3) and Medford Fire (MFD) responded.

Upon arrival, crews reported a fully engulfed single family residence. Firefighters immediately took a defensive approach as the structure was beyond saving. The fire was beginning to spread to surrounding trees and grassland.
