FIRE DESTROYS HOME
IMBLER Firefighters were called to a fully engulfed home fire shortly before 8 a.m. this morning on the north edge of Imbler.
The firefighters from the Imbler and La Grande rural fire departments battled high winds, slippery roads and the raging fire at the home of Sam and Wendy Onjukka, who were out of town.
The firefighters responded to the home near the corner of Striker Lane and Highway 82, according to the Union County 9-1-1 dispatch center.
The couple have two teenage daughters, one in high school and the other a freshman in college, who were also believed to be away from the home, neighbors said.
The Elgin ambulance was called to the scene to stand by in case of firefighter injury.
Reports from the fire departments were not available by press time this morning.
