MADRAS, OR -- Two children have confessed to starting a fire that destroyed four homes inside the Tops Trailer Court in Madras, Tuesday afternoon. The fire started between two trailers, just before 4 p.m. and quickly spread to two others. 

 

There were no injuries and the Red Cross is helping the 17 people displaced by the blaze. 
 
The Jefferson County Sheriff says the two kids, seven and ten years old, are friends who live in the area. They admitted to starting the fire and said it quickly “got away” from them. The two were cited in lieu of custody.
