JUNCTION CITY, Ore. (AP) — One person died in house fire in Junction City on Monday, authorities said.

Crews responded around 2:45 p.m., KEZI-TV reported.

Junction City police on Tuesday identified the person killed as Eri Rolland Ingalls, 82.

Authorities said they respond Monday to a report of a home that was heavily involved with one person possibly unable to get out.

Junction City Police Chief Bob Morris said when he arrived he pulled out a relative of the victim who was using a garden hose to try and put the fire out.

“I had to physically pull him out of the house, so he would not become a victim of the fire as well,” Morris said.

The cause is under investigation.
