BEND, OR -- Late Saturday afternoon Bend Fire & Rescue responded to Robberson Ford on Northeast 3rd Street, on a report of a dumpster fire. Crews arrived and found the fire was not in a dumpster, but was burning pallets, a utility pole, three vehicles, and landscaping. The fire was quickly knocked down, but due to the electrical hazard from arcing power lines, complete extinguishment was delayed about a half hour when Pacific Power shut off the power. Losses estimated at 60-thousand dollars primarily due to vehicle damage. The cause of fire was an electrical failure of unknown type at the utility pole. The utility says power should be restored today.
