BEND, OR -- A Tumalo area barn was destroyed by fire, Monday morning. When Bend Fire crews arrived on Tweed Road, just after 6 a.m., they found the 30x40' outbuilding fully engulfed in flames and the roof caving in. No animals were inside, but a tractor, backhoe and forklift were destroyed by the blaze. The fire's cause has not been determined. It left about $140,000 in damage.
Cloverdale Fire provided a water tender and command officer, thanks to a recently updated mutual aid agreement. Officials say that made collaboration more effective.
