All residents of a home on NE 11th Street escaped safely as their home was completely destroyed by fire early this morning.

 

Bend Fire responded to the 911 call around 1230 a.m., after the residents heard popping and crackling sounds. They found a fully involved fire that was spreading to the trees.

 

The house is reported to be owned by Linda Olson.

 

Battalion Chief Bill Boos reports the numerous additions and void spaces in the house made searching the residence difficult.

 

Estimated damage is about $160,000 to the house and its contents, and is considered a complete loss.

 

Fire officials want to remind you to have working smoke detectors in your home and to check them about twice a year to make sure they stay in working order.
