Law enforcement and fire investigators still aren't releasing key details about a Madras fire that occurred on Culver Highway Wednesday, Sept. 14 and two related drug raids that happened at two Madras addresses Thursday, Sept. 15. Wednesday, Sept. 14 at about 3.45 a.m. fire broke out at a home on 1610 S.W. Culver Highway. A driver passing by reported the fire, which totally destroyed the home. Then, Sept. 15 just moments after noon, officers from the Central Oregon Drug Enforcement task force raided 730 NE Lakeside Drive in Madras. Officers approached the home in an armored vehicle, calling for all residents to come out with their hands up. Officers specifically loud-haled the name Alexzander Brown, who lists the burned home on Culver Highway as his residence in court documents.
