BEND, OR -- Bend Police continue to investigate several suspicious fires discovered inside a vacant historic house on Northwest Congress Street. The Thomas McCann House, near Drake Park, was full of smoke when a worker arrived for a remodeling project, Friday morning. Investigators later found several areas where fires appeared to have been intentionally set; although all were out by the time emergency crews responded.
The home was built in 1915, for the General Manager of the Shevlin-Hixon Lumber Company. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
Anyone with information in the suspected arson is asked to call Bend Police through non-emergency dispatch, at 541-693-6911.
