Two early morning fires destroyed homes in southern Oregon this morning. Both remain under investigation. At 12:15 a.m., O-D-F firefighters, the Butte Falls Fire Department, and Jackson County Fire District 4, responded to a 9-1-1 call to a home at 1991 Crowfoot Road. Crews found the home full engulfed in flames, with the fire spreading to nearby grass lands. Spokesman Brian Ballou says it's not known how the fire started, or how many people may have been in the home. At 2:06 a.m., Rural/Metro Fire Department personnel responded to a fire at 917 Galice Road. A man had to be pulled from the single-wide mobile home,and was unconscious at the time firefighters arrived. The injured man is said to be a friend of the home's owner, Roy Boyer, who reportedly pulled the man from the fire. Spokesman Mike Shaw says there were alarms inside the home, but they were never activated.
