BEND, OR -- Local firefighters were busy over the weekend. Friday night, Bend crews responded to a small fire inside a home on NE Norton. Investigators say a portable air conditioner failed while the homeowners were away. The unit caught fire and ignited nearby furniture. The fire was discovered by neighbors and quickly extinguished firefighters. It caused about $100,000 in damage to the home and its contents. 

 

Saturday morning, the northeast Bend Fitness 1440 was evacuated after smoke was discovered inside (above). Firefighters found flames between the ceiling and roof; they say the fire started in the men’s locker room sauna. They cut holes in the roof to ensure all flames were extinguished. That fire left about $85,000 in damage.
 
And, Sunday afternoon, Redmond firefighters stopped a blaze from spreading on a Terrebonne property after a hay baler caught fire while working in the field (right). Crews spent about an hour making sure the fire was fully out.
