Parakeet dies in house fire
The American Red Cross assisted two people affected by a house fire on Saturday afternoon in Garden Valley that killed a pet parakeet.
The fire broke out around 1 p.m. at a home in the 3000 block of Cleveland Hill Road, west of Roseburg, said Kim Upham, a spokeswoman for the Red Cross.
Upham said the home’s two residents and their dog were unharmed. The Red Cross provided them with counseling and comfort kits, she said.
