BEND, OR -- Eleven adults and three children were impacted by two separate Central Oregon fires, over the weekend.
A Sunday afternoon fire destroyed a southeast Bend home, along with a boat and car. Firefighters responded to Southeast Ventura Place just before 5 p.m. after the residents discovered smoke coming into the house from the garage. Due to heavy fire and a downed live power line, crews were forced into a defensive strategy. There were no injuries and the Red Cross is helping the five adults and one child displaced by the blaze.
