Fire in Alfalfa Burns Two Acres


Deschutes County 911 got a call about a fire Saturday afternoon around 3:30 in the area of Elk Lane and Todd Road. This is the area near Alfalfa that is not covered by any fire district or any wild land agency. Despite that fact, Bend Fire & Rescue, the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service all sent engines to ensure the safety of people living in that area. But, it was up to the landowner, neighbors, and a truck from high desert water hauling to save the home. Two RVs, six cars and their shop were totally destroyed, as well as about two acres burned. Fire officials think the fire started in a travel trailer, but don’t know the exact cause.   Total damage is estimated at $50,000.
