Bend Fire Department responded Friday night to a car fire inside a garage on Mainline Rd in SE Bend. Crews arrived and found a fully restored 1956 Corvette on fire. The owners had a smoke alarm in the garage that alerted them to the fire. They took quick action to attempt to extinguish the fire with a home fire extinguisher while calling 911 immediately.
 

The fire was quickly extinguished and the car was removed from garage to prevent any damage to the home. The investigation determined that an electrical failure under the hood ignited the fire. The fire damaged the engine and interior of the car. The car was fully restored in 2006 and was used for car shows all along the west coast. The fire damage was limited to the Corvette while there is some lingering smoke smell within the garage and home. The car and home were fully insured.
