Shawn Penninger, the assistant chief of the Pendleton Fire Department, said the department got the call to 2600 S.W. Goodwin Ave. at 4:43 p.m.
Four vehicles initially responded before the department called for reserves and support from the tribal and Pilot Rock departments.
Firefighters removed an iguana from the home and gave it oxygen.
Penninger said preliminary investigation shows the cause of the fire was improperly disposed smoking material. Firefighters cleared from the scene after about two hours.
