CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- A manufactured home in Crooked River Ranch was destroyed by a Sunday night fire that killed the homeowner's dog. When fire crews arrived on Shad Road at about 11:30 p.m., they found heavy fire coming from the home, spreading to brush. They quickly extinguished the wildland fire.
Firefighters remained on scene into Monday afternoon to make sure the blaze inside the home was fully out. The operation was complicated by a roof collapse and a "man lift" was brought in to help crews get above the blaze and extinguish it (pictured).
The resident says his dog woke him up, allowing him to safely escape. The dog, however, did not survive. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
