WARM SPRINGS, Ore. (KTVZ) – A fire that destroyed a Warm Springs home three days before Christmas had an accidental cause, investigators said.

Warm Springs Fire and Safety was dispatched around 11 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 22 to the reported structure fire in the 2500 block of Looksh Street, firefighter Garrett Webb said.

Crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the street side of the house, Webb said. They began an offensive attack from the rear of the home, but extreme fire behavior forced them to pull out and attack externally until conditions improved.

The fire was contained within 15 minutes by the seven firefighters on scene. No injuries were reported.

Despite fire crews’ best efforts, the flames extended into the garage and attic and the home was considered a total loss, Webb said. Firefighters stayed on scene to make sure the fire was fully out.
