A fire Monday afternoon damaged a home on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Umatilla Tribal Fire received a call about 4 p.m. for a house fire at 72490 Billy Road, just south of Interstate 84. Both Umatilla Tribal Fire Department and the Pendleton Fire Department responded. According to Chuck Sams, CTUIR spokesman, emergency crews knocked down the blaze at about 5:20 p.m., but not after it tore through the single family home.

According to Sams, crews believe no one was injured. An investigation is underway and more information will be available Tuesday, said Sams.
