New Tetherow Home Damaged By Fire

BEND, OR -- Bend Fire responded to the Tetherow neighborhood just after 10:30 Monday night. The owners of a new house on McRoberts Lane heard noise coming from the attic and discovered a fire. Everyone got out safely and fire crews stopped the flames from spreading into the livable area.

According to Bend Fire & Rescue, the homeowners had just moved in a week ago and were still unpacking. 

Losses are estimated at around $225,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation.


AFTERNOON UPDATE: Investigators now say the fire started behind the gas fireplace, either from a malfunction or failure of the installation or assembly. The three family members are working with the insurance company to secure housing during the rebuild process.
