House fully involved

Philomath Home Destroyed By Fire

Philomath Firefighter's responded thursday afternoon to a house fire at 7225 SW Deerhaven Drive. Upon arrival the house was seen to be completely involved. Philomath firefighter's switched to a defensive mode, making sure that the inferno did not spread to anything other than what was already involved. Monroe Fire and Corvallis Fire also responded as automatic mutual aid. County records list the home as being owned by Scott and Elisa Fairbanks. Should any assistance be requested we will be sure to pass it along.

My heart goes out to this family. I have met them and they are great people with very young children. The girl that was renting a room is a friend of mine and also lost all her belongings as well as her guinea pig. So sad.

Not very many people know, but the family also had a young woman renting a room from them. She lost all of her things as well. Such a sad situation for all. The support from the community has been great.

Very horrible..Everything was lost in the fire and the most immediate need is for clothing. Donations can be brought to the Muddy Creek Charter School library, or if you have any questions about how you can help, contact Jenny Swanson at 541-752-8060
