An unoccupied home near Sisters was destroyed by fire early Thursday morning.
Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District Spokeswoman Julie Spor said crews were dispatched around 1:45 a.m. to a structure fire in the Cascade Meadow Ranch west of Sisters.
First arriving units found the residence at 15169 Windigo Trail engulfed in flames.
The 3,600-square-foot home was unoccupied at the time of the fire. Damage estimates are unknown at this time, but the home is a total loss, Splor said.
Splor said fire crews performed a defensive fire attack due to the progression of the fire on arrival.
The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal and Oregon State Police.
Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District responded with seven emergency vehicles, three additional units from Black Butte Ranch Fire District and four additional units from Cloverdale Fire District also responded to the fire.
A total of 30 firefighters responded to the incident. One firefighter suffered a minor injury, not requiring treatment, during the fire.
“Due to the time of day, and rural nature of the subdivision, the fire was not detected until the home was heavily involved with fire and unsafe for firefighters to enter,” said Fire Chief Roger Johnson.
