LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine home was destroyed by fire, Thursday afternoon. Investigators believe a blown circuit-breaker on an outside electrical panel ignited dry grass, just after 3:30 p.m.
The fire quickly spread to the house on White Buck Ave., detached garage and surrounding area, causing a quarter-acre grass fire. The one woman home at the time was able to safely evacuate.
Firefighters from La Pine, Sunriver, Oregon Department of Forestry and the US Forest Service worked for more than three hours to extinguish the blaze.
