Quick work kept fire damage to a minimum. photo provided


Quick action by homeowners and a rapid response from the Sisters-Camp Sherman RFPD on April 12 kept a wall fire from extending to the entire home on Bitterbrush Lane near Sisters.

Homeowners Chris and John Zandofsky noticed smoke and flames in the wall near a pellet stove and called 911. The homeowners used a garden hose to slow the progress of the fire while the fire department responded. When firefighters arrived they found flames and sparks in the wall and used a chainsaw to gain access to the concealed fire.

Fire Chief Roger Johnson said, "We were fortunate someone was home and noticed the fire early."

Fire damage was limited to a 3-foot-by-3-foot area where the pellet stove flue passed through the exterior wall of the home.

Sisters-Camp Sherman fire personnel responded with 12 firefighters and six emergency vehicles. Additional units from Cloverdale Fire District and Black Butte Ranch Fire District also responded to the fire but were cancelled prior to arrival.
