An early morning fire destroyed a small rental home in Hillsboro, according to the Washington County Fire District.

Crews responded to the home on SE Davis Road around 1:40 a.m. after a neighbor called 911.

The home was rented by Troy Tidwell, who was in a nearby shop at the time of the fire.

Officials say Tidwell tried to enter his home through the front door to grab some belongings, but the smoke and heat forced him to turn back.

Crews were able to contain the fire, and prevent it from spreading to other homes and buildings on the property.

The value of lose and cause of the fire is still under investigation.
