LA PINE, OR -- An early morning fire heavily damaged a home on Forest Road, Monday. La Pine firefighters responded just after midnight and found a motor home and shop fully engulfed in flames, with fire spreading to a nearby home. Everyone had safely evacuated the house, although two dogs were later found dead inside.
The people using the RV as a temporary home were not there when the fire broke out. They told fire officials they had just purchased the 1977 RV and hadn't evaluated all heating and electrical systems prior to the fire. Investigators suspect the fire started with an electrical problem in the vehicle.
The Red Cross is helping the six adults displaced by the fire.
