Bend Fire Responds To Vacant Lot Fire

BEND, OR -- Bend Fire and Rescue responded to a brush fire on Northeast Purcell on a vacant lot near Saint Charles Medical Center Wednesday morning. Battalion Chief Trish Connolly says fire crews put a stop to the fire and it only got to about a quarter of an acre. She says the cause was determined to be a cooking fire by a transient that got away. Connolly also urges homeowners to clear their property and create defensible space to reduce the risk of wildfire.
