Residents evacuated in Eugene OR apartment fire



EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A fire at the Skybox Apartments near the University of Oregon campus in Eugene prompted the temporary evacuation of about 100 residents.

Firefighter Joe Spriggs tells The Register-Guard the Tuesday night fire apparently started on a stove in one unit. The unit’s sprinkler system extinguished the blaze.

The new, student-oriented apartments are located near Matthew Knight Arena.
