Two house fires on Saturday were intentionally set, Spokane fie officials announced today.
A fire at 407 E. Crown Avenue broke out just minutes after a fire a few blocks away at 1507 E. Everett Avenue.
The first fire began at shed and spread to the Everett Avenue home before fire crews knocked it down about 20 minutes later. A resident fled the home safely and was assisted by the Red Cross.
The fire caused significant damage to the home.
Investigators say both fires were man made.
Anyone with information is asked to call the fire department’s tip line at (509) 344-3473 (FIRE).
