REDMOND, OR -- High winds fueled a blaze that destroyed a Redmond-area home, Tuesday night. Crews responded to the call on Highway 126, west of Eagle Crest, at about 7:45 p.m. and found the house fully engulfed.
The two residents discovered the fire after they lost their television signal and went to investigate why. A pair of sisters was driving by and helped the two homeowners evacuate.
Firefighters struggled to extinguish the blaze in the wind and remained on scene through the night. The cause is under investigation.
