The Red Cross is assisting the Wattenburger family, after a fire destroyed part of their home on NW Canyon Drive in Redmond late Friday afternoon.

 

When Redmond fire arrived at the home around 5:45 p.m., the garage was fully engulfed with flames burning through the roof.

 

Fortunately, the firewall that separated the living space from the garage was not breaches by the fire, and crews were able to stop it from damaging the rest of the house.

 

Fire crews rescued one of the three dogs the Wattenburgers owned.  Losses are estimated to be at $130,000 damages to the building and it’s contents. No one was injured.

 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

 

Bend Fire and Crooked River Ranch and the Redmond Police Department assisted in the fire.
