BEND, OR -- Bend Fire crews responded to a brush fire near Third Street and Revere Ave., just before 4:30 Saturday morning. The first firefighters on scene reported juniper, bark and brush was burning behind the Chevron gas station. A single power pole was also involved, and the power line was hanging in a tree.

 

Crews were able to confine the blaze to the immediate area, as Pacific Power responded to the scene. Investigators say the exact cause can't be determined, but that it was human caused. They believe the power line failed as a result of the heat from below.

 

The Bend Fire Department issued warnings, following the blaze, urging everyone to properly dispose of smoldering materials in non-combustible containers.
