Eastside House Fire, May 3

CBFD release – May 2, 2024 – Coos Bay Firefighters were dispatched to 9th Avenue in the Eastside area of Coos Bay just before 1:00 a.m. for a reported house fire. The North Coos 911 Dispatch center received a call from a neighbor that heard someone yelling that their house was on fire, but they could not see smoke or flames. The first fire engine arrived and found light smoke coming from the house. Firefighters quickly made entry and located two occupants that were unable to get out on their own. Firefighters carried out the occupants where they were treated for their injuries by other firefighters until Bay Cities Ambulance arrived and took over patient care. The initial crew reentered the house and located the fire in a back bedroom. The fire was extinguished and contained to the single room. A deceased adult dog was located under the bed of the fire room. A second dog was rescued by firefighters and was given to a caregiver. After an investigation was completed, it was determined that the fire started on the bed and was accidental. The house did not have working smoke alarms. The two occupants of the house were both transported to Bay Area Hospital for further treatment and evaluation. Their condition is unknown at this time. This is a good reminder to check smoke alarms and replace if they are more than 10 years old.
