MADRAS, OR -- Several pets perished in a fire that also destroyed two homes and four cars at Tops Trailer Park, in Madras, Sunday afternoon. Jefferson County Fire crews responded just after 1 p.m. and found the two single-wide mobile homes fully involved. 


Two families were forced to evacuate their homes and one woman received minor injuries when she climbed over a fence to escape the flames. Two firefighters were evaluated after they stepped on a live electrical wire, but were unhurt. 


Five fish, two parrots and a turtle were killed in the blaze. The fire's cause has not been determined.
