ESTACADA, Ore. (KOIN) — The Estacada community is working to fundraise for an 89-year-old veteran who lost his home to a fire last month.

Ben Sudul, known locally as Trapper Ben, said he was asleep when he heard a commotion in his house on July 30th.

“I walked around to open the door in the kitchen, looked at what woke me up, the smoke was about four foot solid. The flames were way up there and I just managed to run out the front ’cause I already couldn’t breathe,” he told KOIN 6 News.
