My dog got out and bit a leashed dog, do I have to pay vet bills?

Asked 12 months ago - Klamath Falls, OR

While I was at work my roommate took my dog outside and he got out of his hands and attacked a leashed dog across the street. Do I legally have to pay the other dog owners veterinary bills? Also how much is a fine for this type of incident? Is my roommate liable for any charges since I was not home?
