Fire destroys Warm Springs home
No one was injured but a home was a complete loss in a fire early Monday morning in Warm Springs.
Warm Springs Fire and Safety were notified at 2:14 a.m. May 31 that the two-story, single-family dwelling with an attached garage on Waba Way in Warm Springs was on fire.
When the first crews arrived, they found smoke and fire showing from the front of the home. Firefighters were alerted that dogs were trapped in a kennel attached to the exterior of the home, and firefighters were able to cut the kennel open and rescue the dogs safely.
Crews initiated defensive fire attack due to rapidly evolving fire conditions in the home.
The structure was considered a total loss. There were no civilian or fire personnel injuries or casualties. The fire was contained to the structure of origin.
Jefferson County Emergency Medical Service, Jefferson County Fire District No. 1, and Crooked River Ranch Fire and Rescue provided mutual aid.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
Anyone who may have witnessed the incident and is able to provide information should contact the Warm Springs Fire and Safety fire chief or the Warm Springs Police Department.
