We have learned updated information about this fire. Lazy J. Spear Boots and Saddlery is right next door to the building where the fire is and was not affected. They are open as usual. One of their signs is on the building that burned but not the business.

Above photo shows the building near 7215 So. Sixth Street Klamath Falls. The fire was in the vicinity of K.C.C. and the AMA station. Photo submitted by Klamath Alerts member Misty Phelps and used with permission.

Klamath County Fire Dist. 1 responded to a report of a structure fire just after 7am today. As seen from the photo the building sustained substantial damage. Reports indicate that a fire investigator was called to the scene after initial attack crews arrived.

Klamath Alerts has reached out to Fire District 1 for a press release, but has not yet responded with information as of time of this posting . We’ll update information if it becomes available.
