Evacuation Orders for Neighbors Lifted
On Tuesday afternoon a structure fire north of Redmond was reported in the 2500 block of NW Rimrock Lane. A house had caught fire and the embers ignited brush near the home and threatened neighboring properties. The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office called for an evacuation of neighbors but the orders were lifted only a few hours later thanks to the work of numerous local fire crews who got the blaze under control.
So far no injuries have been reported but the residence that caught fire is a complete loss, no other properties were damaged.
