Fire Destroys Shop On Rickard Road


Investigators are trying to find the cause of a shop that was destroyed by fire in southeast Bend early Sunday. No Injuries were reported. Bend Firefighters responded at 12:44 am to 21910 Rickard Road. Initial reports were of a barn fire that was spreading to a nearby residence. On arrival, crews found an approximately 1,400 square foot shop/storage building fully involved in fire, with extension to nearby trees, vegetation, and the exterior of a small house nearby.

The fire was quickly knocked down, with crews taking a defensive stance on the shop and protecting nearby structures.

The shop and contents were a complete loss. The fire had extended to the exterior of the small house, and while it did not do significant damage to the interior, the structure was not livable due to the damage. The occupant declined Red Cross assistance. Total damage is estimated at $200,000.

The fire is under investigation at this time, an update will be provided when the investigation is completed.
