COOS BAY — A suspected arson fire Sunday morning destroyed a home in the Libby District, according to a Coos Bay Fire Department press release.

Just before 4 a.m., the Coos Bay Fire Department received a report from the North Coos 911 center of a fully involved structure fire at 92550 Cascade Lane, in the Libby District of Coos Bay. Firefighters arrived on scene to find a double wide manufactured home that had been fully destroyed with only a few of the wall framing members still standing. The structure’s remains were extinguished by fire service personnel.

An investigation of the fire could not take place due to the severity of the fire and is being classified as undetermined, although it is considered highly suspicious.

The home was vacant as it was being remodeled after it was involved in a previous fire in November. The fire in November was investigated by Coos Bay Fire Department, Southwestern Fire Investigation Team and the Office of State Fire Marshal and had been determined that it was an intentionally set fire which was subsequently turned over to the Coos County Sheriff’s Office for further investigation as it was a criminal matter.

If you have any information regarding this fire or the fire that occurred in November, contact the Coos County Sheriff’s Office at 541-396-7800.

If you would like any additional information about the fire or Coos Bay Fire Department, contact Fire Chief Mark Anderson at 541-269-1191.
