SISTERS, OR -- A Sisters home was damaged by fire, Wednesday morning, but officials say it could have been much worse. The homeowners spotted smoke in the garage, just after 9:30 and threw water on the flames after calling 911. Fire crews arrived at the N. Maple Street home within five minutes and extinguished the fire, although smoke and flames damaged much of the garage. The living area also suffered smoke damage. 

 

The call was dispatched during the Sisters-Camp-Sherman Fire District’s monthly staff meeting, and the Chief says six units responded. Chief Roger Johnson said in a statement, "We were fortunate to have the station full of people at the time of the fire. Every fire engine rolled out the door full of firefighters." Five emergency vehicles, with 14 firefighters, responded from Sisters. Black Butte Ranch and Cloverdale fire districts also sent resources.
 
The Red Cross is assisting the family of five.
