CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- A home in Crooked River Ranch was damaged by fire, Tuesday afternoon, and investigators say it was likely caused by a portable heater placed too close to a bed.
The resident, investigating the smell of smoke, discovered a bedroom on fire just before 2 p.m. They closed the door before evacuating, which officials say likely slowed the fire’s spread. Firefighters had it under control within 30 minutes.
The fire was confined to the bedroom, but there was smoke damage throughout the Geneva View Road home.
