CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- A late night fire destroyed a Crooked River Ranch garage, Tuesday, but crews were able to save a nearby home. The homeowner noticed a "glow" outside and discovered her chicken coop and garage on fire, just before 11:30 p.m.
When firefighters arrived at the SW Quail Road home, the fire was fully involved and flames were threatening the home. It took crews over an hour to bring the fire under control; they remained on scene through the night to mop up.
The cause of the fire is undetermined and under investigation. It caused an estimated $100,000 in damage.
