PENDLETON, Ore. - The Pendleton Fire Marshall and an Oregon State Police Detective are trying to figure out what started a house fire that killed two people Wednesday night. The Umatilla Co. Undersheriff says 52 year old Denton Kaufman and his wife, 47 year old Kristina Kaufman were killed in the fire off of Highway 37 along with some of their pets. The Pendleton Fire Marshall says the home was in an area considered a 'No Man's Land' that is outside any fire department's jurisdiction.
