REDMOND, OR -- An Eagle Crest apartment was damaged by a Monday morning fire. Redmond firefighters responded to the four-plex on Golden Pheasant Drive just before 8:30 a.m. and found one unit in the middle of the building fully involved.
The family living there was home at the time. A woman told fire crews she woke to smoke in her bedroom… She alerted her three kids and they evacuated with their dog. She credits her eldest son with thinking quickly and helping them all get to safety. That apartment was a total loss; two neighboring units sustained significant damage.
The fire’s cause is under investigation. The Red Cross is helping those displaced by the blaze. Three of the units had full-time residents, while the fourth was used as a vacation rental.
