BEND, OR -- A man was seriously hurt when flames swept through his camp, just north of Bend, Monday. A Deschutes County Deputy saw 34-year-old Christopher Banjorni walking in the middle of Highway 97 at 9:50 a.m., and determined he was having a medical emergency related to a fire that had just occurred. Banjorni was taken to the hospital with potentially life-threatening injuries. 
 
Deputies and fire crews found the homeless camp east of the highway. They say it was destroyed by the fire, which also burned trees and brush in a 50'x50' area. investigators believe it started when a propane cooking stove ignited and caught a tent and surrounding material on fire.  
 
No one else was at the camp and the investigation is ongoing.
