BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) – Two manufactured homes were destroyed by a fire and two others were damaged Wednesday night at at a mobile home park in southern Bend, officials said. Police officers brought an elderly man to safety from one of the threatened homes.

The fire was reported shortly after 9 p.m. at the Sisters Mobile Home Park on Parrell Road, police Sgt. Rob Emerson said.

The fire initially was reported as being between two manufactured homes and spreading, officials said.

First-arriving officers found the fire had spread to two of the homes, Emerson said. Fire crews and officers began evacuating neighboring homes.

One of the threatened homes was occupied by an elderly, non-mobile man, Emerson said. Police entered the home and pulled the man to safety. Fire officials said the siding on that home had begun to melt from the heat of the nearby fire.

Bend Fire & Rescue arrived on scene and had the fire out in about 20 minutes, and extended to at least one other structure.

Deputy Fire Marshal Dan Derlacki said the fire destroyed two mobile homes and two outbuildings, also causing minor damage to two other homes and a vehicle.

A power line was downed by the fire. Derlacki said late Wednesday the cause of the fire appeared to be accidental, possibly electrical, as there were reports of some power problems in the area about an hour before the fire.

But Derlacki said Thursday the exact cause of the fire was undetermined, due to the extent of damage.

Emerson said there were no known injuries to the occupants.

The American Red Cross was able to provide temporary housing for 11 occupants from three homes affected by the fire, Derlacki said, adding that residents of one home were able to return Thursday, after power was restored.
