OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) -- Clackamas County firefighters say a fire that damaged an Oregon City home and killed a pet dog was likely caused by a propane barbecue grill.

Residents had just finished grilling chicken Tuesday afternoon when the grill exploded next to the house on a covered patio.

The home and belongings appeared to be a total loss.
