MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A house in southern Oregon is badly damaged after catching fire twice in one day.

The Mail Tribune (https://is.gd/i09jnW ) reports the initial fire ignited late Wednesday morning at the two-story home outside Eagle Point. Two adults and two dogs safely evacuated and firefighters extinguished the blaze.

Investigators looking into cause of the fire spotted flames about 5 p.m. and called four engines and a water tender back to the rural property.

Fire district spokeswoman Ashley Lara says it’s too early to say what caused the fire to flare up again, but she believes the dry weather and heat played a role.

Property records show the 1,973-square-foot house was built in 2003.
