Chair fire closes Chambers Street

EUGENE, Ore. - Chambers Street was closed between West 9th and West 10th for about 30 minutes Friday night, and it was all because a chair caught fire inside a home. 

According to the Fire Department, crews quickly put out the blaze with a fire extinguisher.

Both Fire and Police agencies responded to the scene, but neither could say just what caused the chair to catch fire.  

Officers on scene say they were at the home earlier in the day for a civil dispute, but would not say whether or not the fire was intentionally set or even suspicious.
