REDMOND, Ore. (KTVZ) – Two large camp trailers and two vehicles were destroyed in a fire that also spread to a tree Thursday evening east of Redmond, officials said.

Redmond Fire & Rescue units were called just before 7 p.m. to the location near the former Redmond Rod and Gun Club site, an area of land owned by Deschutes County and frequented by homeless campers, Captain Josh Clark said.

They arrived to find the two camp trailers ablaze and the blaze spreading to a tree and two vehicles. Clark said firefighters were able to keep the flames from spreading to a third RV and more vehicles.

There were no injuries, Clark said.

Firefighters remained on scene for more than three hours, due to extensive overhaul.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, the fire captain added.

Assistance was provided at the scene by Redmond police and Deschutes County sheriff’s deputies.

    1. Are you familiar with the term “homeless”? Most folks don’t pick “homeless” as their first choice.

      Guess you are one of the lucky ones, home, work etc.

      FYI ~ there are a high number of homeless vets in our area…seems like their service to our country would provide them with care and opportunities.

      Fact is ~ it does not. The VA is lacking.
      Period.

      Perhaps you need to go hang out with the Grinch.

      Merry Happy to you!

      1. BS. I have worked with many and volunteered to help them throughout the yrs. Today’s homeless are much different than 15 yrs ago. The majority do chose to live homeless vs deal with the stress of a job, home etc. Most are the own victims of continued poor decisions. Don’t forget that 100% of the US homeless population live better lives than 90% of the world’s “normal” population.

  1. My heart goes out to the homeless. But what scares me to death is one of these days the wind is going to be blowing hard & there will be a massive fire that goes out of control

        1. Is there a day, or a thought that doesn’t involve Trump with you, and your kind, so sad that he takes so much of your daily thoughts.
          Obviously not much else to think about. Funny that he controls so much of your lives, who controlled you before?
