LA PINE, OR -- A La Pine home is a total loss after fire tore through the property, Wednesday. A number of passers-by called 911 at around 11 a.m. to report the blaze; a couple of citizens even stopped to bang on the door in an effort to make sure no one was inside.
Day Road was closed for several hours so that firefighters could battle the flames in below freezing temperatures. Crews were able to limit the damage to the trailer and several additions, saving three nearby outbuildings and an RV trailer.
The homeowner had left a couple of hours prior to the incident and no injuries were reported, although a couple of dogs are unaccounted for.
