(TURNER, Ore.) - A structure fire in Turner, Oregon, a town located just south of Salem, drew a five alarm response and reportedly spread to wildland before being brought under control today.

The building, a large house located on Meeko Lane SE in Turner, appeared to be a total loss.

As the video shows, firefighters from several agencies in the region battled the raging fire that burned under a hot Oregon sky.

At this point firefighters from Marion County do not know what caused the fire.

One firefighter was transported from the scene by ambulance after a reported respiratory problem tied to smoke inhalation.

No other information was available, we will update the story when we learn more.

This is raw footage from today's fire by Jerry Freeman:
