FRENCHTOWN — Crews battled a Tuesday night house fire in the Frenchtown area.

The Frenchtown Rural Fire District and the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office responded to a house fire at the corner of Mullan Road and Demer Street.

According to a social media post, when crews arrived on the scene, the front bedroom was on fire. However, firefighters were able to knock down the flames.

FRFD reports the front bedroom sustained fire damage while the rest of the home was limited to smoke damage.

The family was able to evacuate their pets while calling 911. One family member was treated for minor injuries. The fire remains under investigation.

A 30-year-old Australian parrot named Hollywood was moved safely to FRFD Station #1 due to the cold weather.

“Our on duty fire crews are comforting Hollywood and providing shelter while the family makes plans for recovery,” the social media post states.
