About 7 p.m. Bend Fire is called to a home on Apache Road and find the garage completely engulfed in flames, that had also spread to the house and attic.

 

The occupants of the home, renters Casey Bergum and Jaqueline Dodd-Perry lost nearly all of their possessions, but fortunately, they had renter’s insurance.

 

The investigation reveals that the renters were working on a vehicle in the garage and left materials too close to the heater, igniting and spreading the fire.

 

Fire officials remind you to keep combustibles such as paper, wood, fabrics and furniture at least three feet from heating devices.

 

The estimated the loss is at about $250,000.
