A fire that broke out at a Prineville home Sunday afternoon caused $30,000 in damage, Crook County Fire and Rescue said in a news release.
Fire crews responded around 1:30 p.m. to the report of a fire at a home on Northwest Teal Loop. Upon arriving, crews found that flames had erupted in an upstairs bedroom, filling the house with smoke.
A woman and her son were home at the time of the fire, and were alerted to it when the smoke alarms in the house went off. She called 911, and the pair exited the house before crews arrived.
Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze, but significant smoke and heat damage affected the entire second-floor level of the home. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
