Fire Destroys Home In Columbia View Heights Area

Fire destroyed a modular home in the Columbia View Heights area of The Dalles on Monday afternoon.  Mid-Columbia Fire and Rescue Chief Bob Palmer says the fire at 422 Summit Ridge Drive occurred shortly after 12:30 p.m. Monday, and was 75 percent involved when crews arrived.  Palmer noted it was fortunate the fire did not spread in the hot conditions.  He said the owner had cut the grass just days earlier, and that helped prevent the fire from spreading.  The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire, with the owner and a contractor doing renovations.  Palmer says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
