(WOODBURN, Ore.) - A house in Woodburn was a total loss after an intense fire this morning. Fortunately there were no injuries. Woodburn's Fire District was called into action at 8:39 AM and was soon on scene at 16280 Pudding River Road.

The first arriving firefighters found heavy fire coming from the front of the structure, according to Lt. Darin Unrein with Woodburn Fire.

"A transitional attack was used to begin extinguishing the fire from the exterior and work to the interior. The initial response was 3 engines, 1 Ladder, 3 tenders and 1 air support."

Unrein says that because of the location and access, the fire command called for an additional alarm of 2 engines and 3 tenders.

"The fire was deep seated into the void areas making extinguishing difficult. Crews had the fire contained and extinguished in a little over an hour."

Woodburn Fire received resources from several other agencies; the Fire Districts from Aurora, Hubbard, Monitor, Mt Angel responded, as well and Marion County Fire District #1.
