BEND, OR -- Bend Fire responded to a house fire reported Thursday morning on Hollinshead Drive. When crews arrived at about 6:15 a.m., they found fire on the outside of the building, with smoke coming from the garage. They got the fire under control within 30 minutes.
Residents used a meat smoker Wednesday evening, and investigators believe heat from the smoker ignited the side of the garage. The fire eventually moved into the attic. Damage is estimated at about $30,000.
The Bend Fire Department reminds everyone that placing any heat source near a combustible surface can lead to a fire.
