REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Police are investigating an early Wednesday morning house fire on the north end of town. Firefighters responded to NW Maple Avenue, just west of Business Highway 97, at about 3 a.m. after receiving a 911 call.

 

Arriving fire crews found smoke and flames extending through the roof of the one-story house, threatening another structure. A power line was down and arcing in the rear of the building, as well. The fire department left at about 5:30 a.m., but were called back to the scene after more smoke was seen coming from the building; they continued to mop up the scene. 

 

Everyone inside the home safely evacuated prior to the arrival of emergency crews, although a dog died in the blaze. 

 
Investigators say it's too early to know the cause or whether a crime was committed. 
 
WEDNESDAY P.M. UPDATE: Investigators report the early morning fire was caused by "Catastrophic electrical failure."
