BEND, OR -- A southwest Bend family was lucky to escape a fire that destroyed their home, early Wednesday morning. Fire crews say the house on Cedarwood Road had only one smoke alarm and it did not activate. The family of five, including a newborn, evacuated after waking to the smell of smoke just after midnight. 

 
When firefighters arrived, the house was fully involved, and embers were spreading to trees and dry vegetation up to a quarter mile away. Forestry crews helped prevent a wildland fire while Bend firefighters extinguished the house fire. Its cause is under investigation.  
 
The Red Cross is helping the family with a place to stay and clothing and food, since all their belongings in the house were destroyed.
