String of Overnight Fires in Bend

BEND, Ore — Fire Crews in Bend responded to five fires Wednesday, all within a block of each other.

Crews responded shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday, to a report of smoke coming from the Trinity Episcopal Church on Wall Street. As units arrived, another fire was reported at another nearby church.

A short time later, dispatchers received reports of fires at three other homesĀ  near the Episcopal Church.

Officials are not calling the fires suspicious at this point, but the investigation is still in its early stages. No injuries were reported.
