A duplex unit in Yoncalla is a complete loss following a fire Monday night. David Adkisson of North Douglas County Fire and EMS said crews were called to the fire at about 8:40 p.m. in the 700 block of Cedar Street. Adkisson said nearby volunteer firefighters were first on the scene to provide a size up of the situation and to establish command of the scene for incoming units. Due to a city-wide water issue, water tenders were requested immediately to assist in fighting the fire in order to not disrupt the recovering city system. Water tenders from North Douglas, Oakland, Elkton and Sutherlin assisted with shuttling water from Drain to Yoncalla. Adkisson said firefighters contained the blaze within minutes and prevented the fire from spreading to an additional duplex unit along with a nearby house, shop and pasture.
