REDMOND, OR -- A Redmond barn was damaged by a Saturday morning fire, on NW 39th Street. According to Redmond Fire and Rescue, crews responded at about 8:30 a.m. and found fire on the outside of the building, with the interior "fully charged" with smoke and heat. 

 

Firefighters ventilated the 1200 square-foot building, extinguished the blaze and checked for hidden hot spots. The property owner was able to salvage numerous tools and equipment from inside. The blaze left about $22,000 in damage. 

 

Investigators believe the fire started with an electrical short caused by heat tape. Redmond Fire reminds everyone that "Artificial heat generating equipment or devices can be very dangerous and could potentially cause a catastrophic fire if not properly installed or used as per the manufacturers' recommendations," the department said in a statement. "With temperatures recently dropping significantly, extreme caution should be used when trying to keep pipes, rain gutters/down spouts or stock/pet water tanks from freezing by means of such devices."
