REDMOND, OR -- Redmond firefighters responded to a house fire late Friday night which some neighbors are calling "suspicious."

 

According to the fire department, the unoccupied two story home near NE 9th and Negus was fully engulfed when crews arrived, just before 10 p.m. Witnesses tell KBND News the structure burned very quickly, in a matter of minutes. Fire crews say their priority was to take defensive measures to protect a nearby home under construction, and equipment. 

 

So far, the cause of the fire has not been determined. One neighbor tells KBND News construction workers were seen clearing debris away from the home earlier in the day, and a burn barrel used at the site may have been moved closer to the structure, built in 1929.

 

The homeowner is listed as Miguel Segoviano, owner of Sego Insulation and Sego Construction. Sego Construction has built a number of new homes in the area in recent years and is in the process of building a new house adjacent to the one that burned Friday night. That new construction was not damaged in the blaze.
