BEND, OR -- An early Sunday morning fire heavily damaged a southeast Bend home, and officials say the family is lucky no one was hurt. According to fire investigators, a heat lamp for chicks was duct taped to a table; the fire started when the tape could no longer support the weight of the industrial lamp, and it fell.

 

One person awoke just after 2 a.m. to find smoke filling the house and alerted the others – smoke alarms were not working.  All residents, including the chicks, got out of the Alstrup Road home safely and firefighters were able to knock down the blaze, but not before it caused about 65-thousand dollars in damage.
