Two people were rushed to the hospital today after a fire broke out in a Central Point home. Just after 11 this morning, fire crews and medical personnel raced to a double wide on the 800 block of East Gregory Road. Medford Fire and Fire District Three were both on scene and able to get it under control in about 20 minutes. The structure is actually split into two homes. “The damage was contained to the front part of the duplex, I guess be we’ll be calling it, but there is heavy smoke damage throughout so residents will be displaced,” Ashley Blakely, Fire District Three, said. By the time they got there, a neighbor had been able to get the tenant out of the burning home. Neighbors say it was an elderly woman. The extent of her injuries are unknown. Another person, a man, was also taken to the hospital. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
