'It's not uncommon to have warming fires started by the homeless'

EUGENE, Ore. -- Crews doused a tool shed fire early Friday morning that officials said could have been started by someone trying to keep warm.

Fire officials got word of the fire at near 2nd and Chambers St. in Eugene around 4 a.m. Friday.

Battalion Chief Don Vaught said that it looked like someone was inside the building when the fire started and they could have been using the space to keep warm.

“It appears the door was open in the shed and it's not uncommon to have warming fires started by the homeless,” said Vaught.

Officials said that they are still determining what caused the fire.

The fire department said that this fire doesn't appear to be related to another fire in a nearby apartment complex about a half hour later
