Fire destroys Coos County home

GLASGOW, Ore. -- Fire crews battled a fire on East Bay Road Tuesday evening that had people scrambling to save possessions.

Fire crews on the scene of the home directed people to stay out of the area as ammunition inside the burning house was exploding.

Family members came to the scene and could be seen trying to get possessions from the garage.

The actual homeowners are on vacation and were not at the home at the time of the fire.

Fire crews had to bring in water in tanker trucks since the house is in a rural area.

The home appeared to be a total loss.
