Unattended Candle Blamed for Bend Fire

BEND, OR -- Bend Fire investigators say an unattended candle led to a small fire at a house on the south end of Bend, Monday afternoon. The resident apparently left the second-story room for a moment, and wind blew the blinds into the candle. She heard the smoke alarm, grabbed her child and evacuated the home.

 

Neighbors used a garden hose to extinguish the flames and by the time crews arrived, the fire was out.  Firefighters checked the building and removed the smoke. 
 
They say working smoke detectors were a significant factor in keeping everyone safe.
