SISTERS, OR -- A Sisters family lost their home to fire, late Sunday night, in the Panoramic View Estates subdivision. The homeowners discovered smoke and flames in their children’s bedroom at about 11 p.m., and were able to pull the kids to safety before trying to put the fire out with a fire extinguisher. After those attempts failed, they evacuated, wearing only their pajamas. 


When fire crews arrived, the home was fully involved. A Sheriff’s Deputy found one of the family’s cats in the neighborhood, but another has not been found and may have been trapped inside. The house and its contents are considered a total los, valued at $110,000. 
Deputies collected children’s clothing from their families in Sisters, handmade quilts from the Central Oregon Spinners and Weavers Guild, and stuffed animals for the kids. The Red Cross also responded to the scene to provide additional resources.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation but is believed to be accidental.
