REDMOND, OR -- The Red Cross is helping a family of five, after a fire damaged their Redmond home, Thursday. A passerby noticed smoke coming from the house on Northwest Maple Rim Court just after noon, and called 911. Arriving crews found smoke coming from several windows. They were able to quickly extinguish the blaze.
The fire was contained to the living room; however, smoke and heat caused significant damage throughout the structure. Damage is estimated at $200,000. No one was home at the time and the cause is under investigation.
