1/24/15  Downtown Medford Fire Prompts Evacuation

  A potentially deadly apartment fire was averted Saturday, January 24, 2015,  on Medford’s Main Street.    The Medford Area Fire Department was called just after 12 noon to the Riverview Apartments at 346 South Main for the report of smoke coming from an apartment.  For the safety of the tenants, an evacuation was ordered and the 3 story building was emptied.  A Krug Motorcoach was brought in and tenants of the building were temporarily taken to the Medford High School. 

  Mild temperatures in the mid 30’s made the transition for some of the disabled individuals more bearable.  Medford firefighters applied positive pressure and entered Apartment 207 which is a second story room. Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire which was in the area of a coffee table.  No injuries were reported.  The fire in the room was unable to spread because the apartment’s door was closed. 

  Aside from some smoke and water damage, the fire’s damage was limited to the second floor apartment.  Cause of the fire is under investigation. 

  Assisting at the scene was the Medford Ambulance, Medford and Taylor County officers, and the Stetsonville Fire Department.  Medford firefighters were on the scene at the Riverview Apartments for about 3 hours.
