Fern Ridge Home destroyed by fire
November 15, 2023
A home in the 28000 block of Fern Ridge Road is in ruins after being engulfed in flames early Sunday morning.
According to a press release from the Sweet Home Fire District, crews arrived on scene at about 3:40 a.m. to find the house completely in flames. They say a woman at the scene told them it was her home and everyone was out.
The fire posed a challenge to firefighters, due to a lack of fire hydrants in the area. SHFD called out a water tender and almost a dozen firefighters, before sounding a second alarm and bringing in backup from Brownsville, Halsey and Lebanon.
