REDMOND, OR -- A brush west of Redmond fire is being blamed on a red tail hawk. Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the quarter-acre blaze near Northwest 83rd and Atkinson, just after 7 p.m. Tuesday. A local rancher responded first, cutting a fire line with his tractor prior to the arrival of fire crews.

 

Authorities say a hawk was electrocuted when it landed on an overhead line. It fell to the ground, igniting the blaze. According to Redmond Fire officials, “The hawk did not survive.”
