Some people shooting them off in the park at Broadway Avenue and Chestnut Street apparently didn't get the memo.
The suspects shot an ill-pointed Roman candle from the park to a house across the street, said Lisa Jones, the city's fire marshal. The firework hit a bush in the front yard, which was engulfed in flames. By the time firefighters arrived, the flames had spread to the front porch and into the house.
A woman and her dogs died in a fire that ripped through her northeast Spokane home Friday.
Inez L. Williams, 67, was described by friends and family as an animal lover who had lived at 4128 E. Princeton Ave. for decades.
Fire officials are investigating how the fire at the double-wide trailer began, but the woman’s niece, Kim Staggs, said her aunt had large oxygen tanks in the home and often smoked in bed.
