TUALATIN, Ore. (AP) - A fire that destroyed a Tualatin home last week - causing more than $1 million damage - has been blamed on an outdoor barbeque grill.

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue investigators said in a news release Monday the fire started at the rear of the home, where combustible materials were near the grill. The flames spread and the two-story home was quickly engulfed.

The fire displaced two people and a dog, but there were no injuries.

The estimated damage to the home and its contents: $1.4 million.
