Oxford firefighters were called to the area of Old Worcester Road for a report of a structure fire on February 14th. A passing utility crew saw smoke coming from the house and the called the fire department.

A backdraft had occurred blowing out glass and a kitchen wall. Firefighters had heavy fire showing on arrival. They knocked it down pretty quick but the fire had already traveled to the second floor and began to gain headway.

A second alarm was sounded bringing in additional personnel. As the fire grew in intensity all companies were pulled from the house. Leicester set up their tower ladder and started to vent the roof. The bucket of the tower got lost in the thick smoke.

After a while of defensive attack crews went back in and gained control and extinguished the blaze.

No one was home at the time of the fire and two dogs fled from the residence but were located.
