BEND, OR -- A local transient is blamed for a fire at a Bend car dealership. Crews responded to Kendall Toyota, early Friday morning, and found a Polaris Ranger UTV fully engulfed in flames; two other cars were damaged by heat – one car was privately owned and just in for service.
Officers later found Michael Gaskill in another car parked at the lot. They believe he is responsible for that fire and a small warming fire in another part of the property. He’s charged with Arson and meth possession, among other crimes.
