“They had multiple structures burning with the fire spreading through dry grass and junipers. So they were able to make a quick, quick attack on the fire spreading through the junipers and then be able to contain the fires to the structure themselves,” said Redmond Fire Marshal Tom Mooney.

After conducting interviews and gathering evidence, investigators determined the fire was intentionally set. Redmond Fire says it’s working with police as it continues the investigation.
