Two adjacent homes at Eagle Crest Resort were heavily damaged by fire Sunday evening. Deschutes County 911 received several calls reporting that the homes were completely engulfed in flames. When Redmond firefighters arrived, they found the flaming structures were surrounded by a golf course, other homes, and a large area of wildland brush. The strong wind threatened to spread the flames quickly. In a heroic effort to contain the blaze, two wildland task forces were activated, bringing firefighters and equipment from a wide area of Central Oregon. It took them about 90 minutes to get everything under control. Mop-up operations continued late into the night. No cause of the fire has been determined.
