BEND, OR -- An outbuilding was destroyed in a morning fire, Tuesday, just east of Bend. Fire crews responded to the rural property on Butler Market Road just before 6 a.m. and found the 20'x30' shed well involved, with flames spreading to a nearby pickup. The building, its contents and the vehicle were all destroyed. 

 

The shed was used to house livestock and store tools. Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze and contain the animals (pictured), which included pigs and chickens. Due to the rural location, Bend Fire used water tenders to get water to the site. 

 

Officials say the homeowner was alerted to the fire by the family dog. There were no injuries. The blaze caused about $25,000 in damage and its cause is "undetermined."
