REDMOND, OR -- Investigators say a fire inside a northwest Redmond home was extinguished by the same item that started it. A man returned to his home on NW Nickernut Ct. just before 10 p.m., Friday, to find his house filled with smoke and glass and water on the floor. He called 9-1-1, unsure what had happened.


When firefighters responded, they discovered a blaze had started in the back of a cabinet holding a 25-gallon fish tank. The fire broke the glass, spilling the tank’s contents and extinguishing the flames. The blaze caused about $1,000 in damage. 


Crews found two lifeless catfish on the floor covered in soot, and were able to revive them in a sink.

 

Redmond Fire responded to another incident about a mile away, Sunday evening. They say a fire started in the home's kitchen, on NW 20th St., when someone turned the wrong dial on the stove, igniting a burner instead of the oven. Materials left on top of the stove caught on fire, but it was put out with a fire extinguisher before crews arrived.
