A home in Deschutes River Woods was destroyed Friday afternoon; and other homes threatened as wind whipped the flames towards the tinder dry nearby brush.

 

Around 3:30p.m., Bend Fire arrived to the scene on Apache Road and found a home owned by Shane and Jennifer Haller fully engulfed. 

 

Crews were able to surround and contain the fire, but Apache and Cinder Butte Roads and a portion of Baker Road were shut down while authorities fought the fire.

 

Deputy Fire Marshal Dan Derlacki says the fire was extinguished; but crews will be on the scene through today to make sure the fire remains out.  The cause of the fire is found to be electrical - possibly from an appliance plug.

 

The damage is estimated at $300,000. The homeowners were not home at the time.
