House fire on Stacy Ln - Bend 11-22-22 (Photo) - 11/22/22

Bend Fire Department was called to a house fire at 3:30 this morning after a neighbor reported a shed on fire on Stacy Ln. Bend PD arrived on scene first and found the shed fully involved and spreading to the house and trees. Officers knocked on the door and alerted the occupants who were then able to escape unharmed with both of their dogs. The fire had spread to the garage when fire crews arrived. A quick stop of the fire kept it from spreading to the interior of them home. Damages are estimated at $70,000 to the house, the contents and two cars parked in the driveway, one of which is a complete loss. 

The cause of the investigation is still ongoing with fire investigators scheduled to be back on scene later this morning. Red Cross was called to assist the occupants. 

Both occupants rent and have renters’ insurance. Bend Fire Department highly recommends anyone who rents, or leases obtain renters insurance for them and their families. This is a low-cost insurance policy that can protect you in the event of a fire like this. The homeowner’s insurance will only cover the loss to the building, not your personal belongings. Check with your insurance provider for details but many times having car and renters’ insurance with the same company can help reduce the cost through discounts for multiple policies.
