BEND, OR -- A Southwest Bend home suffered about $5,000 in damage in a Tuesday morning fire. According to Bend Fire, someone placed a towel too close to a sauna heater.

 

Damage was largely confined to the sauna, with minor smoke and water damage to the house. The homeowners smelled smoke before alarms sounded. Investigators say the three-story home was built in 1995 and only had its two original smoke detectors. Officials say they typically have an effective life of 10 years and should be replaced every decade.
