PHOTOS: Woman escapes Northwood blaze, Home destroyed

A woman was able to escape a house fire in Northwood on Tuesday.

Northwood firefighters battled both the brutal cold and a burning hot blaze on Tuesday morning.

Crews were dispatched to the 900-block of Gould Street just before 8 a.m. on reports of a house fire.

Before firefighters arrived at the scene, a woman escaped the fire unharmed.

No firefighters were injured in the blaze and precautions were taken to ensure they were not out in the sub-zero temperatures for too long.

The cause of the fire is under investigation and it does appear the home was destroyed.

The Northwood Fire Department was assisted by the Oregon Fire and Rescue Department, the Allen-Clay JFD, and Lake Township Fire Department.
