REDMOND, OR -- Local Red Cross volunteers are helping three families impacted by separate fires on New Year’s Eve.
Early Saturday morning, Redmond Fire responded to a home on Southwest Cascade Avenue. They say an aging wood stove led to the fire in walls and the attic space. That blaze caused an estimated $35,000 in damage and displaced two adults and five pets.
Just before 11 a.m., Redmond Fire responded to a fire near 19th and Elkhorn. The single-family fire affected two adults.
And, at about 5 p.m., Crook County Fire and Rescue arrived at a motor home fire with explosions on SE Cahvilla Road, south of Prineville (pictured). Nine firefighters arrived to find the motor home completely consumed by flames with multiple propane tanks. Two people lived in the RV, which was a total loss.
