EUGENE, Oregon — Officials say two firefighters were injured early Sunday while fighting a blaze at a home in Eugene.

Deputy Chief Randy DeWitt of the Eugene-Springfield Fire Department says both firefighters were treated and released from local hospitals and were at home recovering. One firefighter suffered a leg injury, while the other had a shoulder injury.

The two-story home had been converted into four units, and the people living there were out of the home when fire crews arrived just after 3 a.m.

DeWitt says the fire involved an upstairs apartment, and appears to be accidental.

Investigators are working to determine what caused the fire.
