Bend Fire Department crews responded around 2 a.m. to the reported house fire in the 61000 block of Deer Valley Drive, Battalion Chief Jeff Blake said. They arrived to find a fire burning in the attic of the one-story house, with smoke and flames just starting to breach the roofing material, Blake said. The crews, totaling 15 personnel, quickly put out the fire and began salvage and overhaul operations. The occupants and neighbors had called Deschutes County 911 dispatchers and the residents safely evacuated the home, which has working smoke alarms, before crews arrived, Blake noted.
