A fire broke out late Wednesday night at a 77-year-old home in southwest Redmond, authorities said. The fire was reported around 10:15 p.m. at a home on SW Deschutes Ave. First crews to arrive indicated one side of the home was ablaze. At first, crews were unsure if the home was occupied, but they said shortly after 10:30 p.m. that a primary search was "all clear." But, the investigation reveals that a family pet, a cat died in the fire. The Redmond Fire and Rescue report indicates the fire caused about $45,000 damage. Deschutes County property tax records listed the three-bedroom home as owned by Randy and Naomi Carrington and built in 1934.
