BEND, OR -- A northwest Bend four-plex was damaged by fire, Thursday. Its cause remains under investigation. When firefighters responded to Milwaukee and Knoxville just after 10:15 a.m., they found smoke coming from the second floor balcony door.
Crews quickly extinguished the blaze before it could spread beyond the bedroom. The occupant of that unit was not home at the time, but smoke alarms alerted others, who called 911. Damage is estimated at about $60,000.
